The city of Fribourg, or Freiburg in German, is one of Europe's most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns. However, the city moves to the beat of its students. Students are over a third of the population, so this ancient city is truly young at heart.
Located at the crossroads of the German and French speaking regions of Switzerland and nestled between Northern and Southern Europe, Fribourg is a bridge between cultures and languages.
Fribourg hosts a multitude of festivals and cultural events throughout the year. It has cafés and restaurants that serve first-class delicacies, and it is a veritable sporting paradise with easy access the mountains. It is easily accessible by road, rail and air from Geneva, Zurich, Lausanne and the Swiss capital, Bern.
