Moléson-sur-Gruyères
The Essential
This welcoming village has a mountain cheese dairy housed in a 17C chalet. Visitors will see how cheese is manufactured traditionally in a giant cauldron heated by a wood-burning fire and sample (extra fee) local specialties. The summit of the Moléson (alt. 2,002m) commands a sweeping view from Lake Geneva to the Jura and the Mont Blanc to the peaks of the Bernese Oberland. In winter, 35km of waymarked runs are greatly prized by downhill skiers.
