Everytime I visit Gruyères I am amazed by the hospitality of their inhabitants who are bilingual. They speak both French and Swiss German. A meal in one of numerous restaurants, followed by a visit to the medieval castle on the hill with its fantastic views of the Alpes Fribourgeois, rounds up a happy day for me.
