    As a non-Freiburger it was not easy to find everything. Some historical information would be nice. Was a lot of fun. Unfortunately we skipped the cheese course. We were no longer hungry or thirsty. We didn't use the City Card either. But we appreciated that she was there. Kind regards and many thanks. Christa Huonder

    The tour took us across Friborg and we were able to strengthen ourselves again and again. The food and drink stops were all great, tasty and very nice. With the Friborg CityCard, which is included in the offer, we were able to climb the cathedral tower, take the Funi and then take a city tour on the mini train. This package also includes admission to various museums. Just unbelievable!!! We can only recommend this tour, even for locals!

    The first part of the description contains 2 restaurants at stops 4 and 5 (Le Belvédère and Au Sauvage) which are closed or no longer participate. A glass of wine is included with lunch, but 1 liter of water is charged at CHF 9.50. We thought the beer at 10.15 was special, so we swapped stops 3 and 4
