I wrote about the Old Highland Museum in a previous blog post in the context of their temporary exhibition of Swiss paper-cut art. However, this museum is well worth a visit for their permanent exhibition of traditional art and lifestyle of the Fribourg highlands.
Düdingen Marshland Nature Trail
We discovered this amazing nature trail a couple of weeks ago when I was looking for a short hike close to home that could entice FriBoy. He thinks humans don’t need to walk because they have cars, bikes and other vehicles for this purpose, courtesy of evolution.
Ogoz island is a popular destination in the canton of Fribourg, laying in the lake of Gruyeres, reachable by foot in spring and summer when water recedes. We hiked to Ogoz last weekend for the first time and it didn’t disappoint. When it comes to nature I don’t really like to go to the crowded and popular places, I prefer remote and less known but Ogoz island is really a must for everyone living here or just visiting.
The Secret Life of Fribourg
Making and offering art for birthdays has become somewhat of a family tradition. I make paintings for everyone in my family either for their birthdays or for another special occasion. For me this is easier than coming up with a gift idea that is likable and useful. It is also very personal.
Rullion is back with a vengeance
When I was a child, the beginning of March was always a magical and highly expected time of the year, partly because I never liked January and February. After the euphoria of December, they seemed to me like a perpetual Monday. March was the promise of good weather, Martisor [Mərtsishor] (a talisman exchanged by people on the 1st of March in celebration of spring and the renewal of time) and the days of Baba Dochia [Dokia].
Hubert Audriaz – Le chemin vers l’Epiphanie
I love what Hubert Audriaz is doing in Old Town Fribourg. When we moved here I thought this place is very much lacking in the art department. Now I think differently because a lot of events are happening but they tend to stay local, in the Swiss spirit.
Le Marché des Artisans de l’Arsen’Alt
Le marché des artisans de l’Arsen’Alt est encore ouvert aujourd’hui jusqu’a 18 h. Il y a un petit coin bistrot et un gros sentiment de communauté. J’ai adoré.
When Streets Are Ampty
My favorite time of the day in Fribourg is early morning, when the streets are empty. I feel like the city belongs to me.
This is worth a post because I have rarely seen this much snow in Fribourg.
Urban Hiking – Chemin du Gotteron
15 minutes walk from downtown Fribourg and you feel like you are in the middle of nature. Few cities can boast with that. This might be the most amazing thing about this place.
