The place is a private area, so you cannot enter and explore.

The castle looks like an old house, this place is under renovation and it is impossible to enter the area, and if you miraculously enter the area, you cannot even dream about entering it. Just hopeless. I give two stars because after renovation it may look like this.

No visit possible. Renovation works will soon be older than the castle itself. Nothing happens. Detriment...

The ruins have been fenced for at least several years, some sort of work is being carried out, but to be honest no progress can be seen, and I go there by bike at least once a year. There were archaeological studies, the formwork and tarpaulins remained, and that's it. Ruins are deteriorating from year to year, no real protection is expected. In the village buildings visible elements of stones and bricks obtained by the more "preventive" residents of the castle just - some built whole buildings - it is sad, but this is the reality. The ruins have become a building material for the needs of the local population. As for sightseeing - if you go specially with the expectation of sightseeing, you can be disappointed - the area is closed. Unofficially, with a little luck from the lake side you can get closer. In general, the ruins of the castle breathe former splendor, for people sensitive to history will definitely stimulate the imagination. Unfortunately, without real protective measures they will fall into oblivion and oblivion ...

Gruyères Castle

The Castle of Gruyères is one of the most famous in Switzerland. It was built between 1270 and 1282, following the typical square plan of the fortifications in Savoy. It was the property of the Counts of Gruyères until the bankruptcy of the Count Michel in 1554. His creditors the cantons of Fribourg and Bern shared his earldom. From 1555 to 1798 the castle became residence to the bailiffs and then to the prefects sent by Fribourg.

In 1849 the castle was sold to the Bovy and Balland families, who used the castle as their summer residency and restored it. The castle was then bought back by the canton of Fribourg in 1938, made into a museum and opened to the public. Since 1993, a foundation ensures the conservation as well as the highlighting of the building and the art collection.

The castle is the home of three capes of the Order of the Golden Fleece. They were part of the war booty captured by the Swiss Confederates (which included troops from Gruyères) at the Battle of Morat against Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy in 1476. As Charles the Bold was celebrating the anniversary of his father's death, one of the capes is a black velvet sacerdotal vestment with Philip the Good's emblem sewn into it.

A collection of landscapes by 19th century artists Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Barthélemy Menn and others are on display in the castle.
