Château de Gruyères

Gruyères Castle houses prestigious collections that bear witness to its long and rich history. The treasures to be found within its walls include the capes of the Order of the Golden Fleece and the intricate stained-glass windows dating from the Middle Ages; the frescoes commissioned by the bailiffs under the Ancien Régime; paintings by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot; and the decorations of the Knight’s Hall. From its ramparts to its French-style gardens, from the guard room to its romantic salons, Gruyères Castle takes you on an adventure through eight centuries of art, history and legends.

In April 2009, the Alain Bordier Foundation inaugurated the Tibet Museum right in the heart of medieval Gruyères. Its permanent exhibition encompasses a remarkable collection of buddhist sculptures, paintings and ritual objects. Some of these originate from Tibet’s neighboring regions such as Nepal, Kashmir, North India or Burma. This exhibition of extraordinary beauty can be discovered and contemplated within the walls of a restaured chapel dedicated to Saint Joseph.
