When you think of the best places for food in Europe, what comes to mind? Perhaps Italy, or France? We’d argue that Switzerland also deserves a top score for food lovers.
In addition to its stunning scenery of rugged mountains, alpine forests, and sparkling lakes, Switzerland is a fantastic culinary destination. Though world-class cuisine can be found throughout the country, visit Gruyères to hit the highlights.
Begin by touring Maison Cailler, a renowned chocolate factory. Over one hundred years old, Maison Cailler offers visitors a glimpse into the craft of making chocolate. Sample their varieties and even create your own piece of edible art at their Atelier du Chocolat.
Of course, no visit here would be complete without sampling the region’s famous cheese. At a restaurant in the picturesque medieval village, enjoy a delicious, bubbly pot of fondue alongside a chilled glass of white wine.
To experience all the culinary delights of Gruyères, consider the Majestic Switzerland tour offered by Luxury Gold in the summer of 2017, your journey will be elevated by five-star accommodations, outstanding dining, and stunning sightseeing.
