GRUYÈRES – and the thermal baths
Ok, everyone who has been living in Geneva long enough has at some point made it to Gruyères on a day trip, right? But if you have out of town visitors and you are going to Gruyères for multiple times… then you should know about areas around Gruyères to make it more fun for yourself!
Gruyères is nice, and the castle is worth a visit. Of course, you can go and buy cheese, or visit the chocolate factory in Broc, but what you could also do is combine your visit with a few hours of relaxing in thermal baths with some great views on the mountains!
The Bains de la Gruyère, are quite modern thermal baths with an indoor and an outdoor area, and this relaxing Swiss activity could be a life saver if you have visitors on days when the weather is less certain! When I recently had friends over from home, we have visited the castle of Gruyères and enjoyed the thermal baths on a rainy day and it was just perfect!
