Fontain, a small farming village
The Wash House
A long agricultural tradition
In the middle ages, the fertile land of Fontain depended on the feudal lords of Arguel, the counts of Chalon. This powerful family dominated Franche-Comté for several centuries. Under their authority, in the 16th century, growing of grains and vines, as well as raising sheep and other similar animals were already taking place in the village. Cheese quickly became one of the regional specialities. In the 19th century, two cheese-making companies opened in Fontain. One of them is still well-known today.

Das dynamische mittelalterliche Städtchen Murten
A medieval old town
Built in 1170, the old town of Morat remains associated, historically, with the epic battle fought by the Swiss confederates against the attacks by Charles le Téméraire, in 1476. The only ancient walls in Switzerland that can still be climbed offer a clear view over the town, the lake and Mont Vully. Cafes under the old arcades offer up an invitation to come and relax. With its medieval architecture, Morat has also kept its fountains, large houses and a chateau.
