Friday was a bank holiday in the canton of Fribourg and we took this opportunity to visit a museum that had interested me for quite some time but didn’t get the chance to see until now because it’s open only for 3 hours a day, between 14:00 – 17:00.
The Sense folk costume is unique in Switzerland, this type used to be worn by girls upon marriage. The headdress was marker of the marital status, like allover Europe and in other parts of the world. Nowadays the traditional costume is worn for the catholic Corpus Christi processions in Tafers and Dudingen.
My favorite time of the day in Fribourg is early morning, when the streets are empty. I feel like the city belongs to me.
Je fais des promenades journalières sans but, juste pour le plaisir de découvrir la ville, la nature urbaine et les gens, et depuis quelques semaines j’ai corrompu mon mari à me joindre. Aujourd’hui c’était lui qui avait proposé de descendre en Basse Ville par la passarelle des Neigles, une route qu’on n’avait pas empruntée avant.
This is worth a post because I have rarely seen this much snow in Fribourg.
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.
