Photographer's Note

If you had only two hours to visit the medieval town of Gruyères and its castle in Switzerland, where would you spend your time? In the castle with its 8 centuries of architecture, history and culture? In one of the many restaurants enjoying the cuisine and atmosphere? In the Giger museum? In the tourist shops? or walking around the town and castle grounds? It is not possible to do all of these things in two hours so I decided to take in the views around the castle and its grounds.
This view was taken on a walking track below the castle. The two people in the distance have divertef from the main track and are heading towards a nearby hamlet. The two nearest the camera took the same diversion after I had taken this photo.

The Castle of Gruyères located in the medieval town of Gruyères, Fribourg, is one of the most famous in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance.
