La Braye – Recreation and Adventure in Pays d’Enhaut Château-d’Oex

From Dorf Château-d’Oex (Château-d’Oex Village) the aerial cable car glides over the Saane Valley. A chair lift then takes you to the foot of Rochers du Midi. The gentle landscape of Pays d’Enhaut as well as attractive packages make La Braye a family-friendly excursion destination.
The mountain became famous due to the treasure hunt that followed in the footsteps of the adventurer Mike Horn. The Ant Trail gives insights into the fascinating world of the little six-legged insects. A visit to a farm acquaints visitors with donkeys, cows, chickens and ducks.

A 248-meter Tyrolienne near the valley station located at 1625 meters offers adventurers an unforgettable experience. If you are looking for more adventure, test the downhill scooters (Trottinherbe) on an exciting descent into the valley, or ride a mountain bike and retrace the tracks of the Mountainbike World Cup.

In winter Château-d’Oex / La Braye is a family-friendly, small snow sports area near Gstaad. Children up to age 9 ski for free everywhere in the Vaudois Alps.

Autumn in Swiss Alps

Now that autumn has arrived and the holiday season not far away, makes this a perfect time to catch up on the vacation that you missed out on during your busy life. One of my favorite places is Switzerland. Switzerland is a beautiful country all year long. But something is different when the cool temperatures begin to set in with the arrival of autumn.

The autumn weather is another reason to visit Switzerland during the fall, with temperatures fairly moderate during the months of September and October. It allows visitors to get out and explore the country’s attractions and beautiful landscape with the towering Swiss Alps forming a magnificent backdrop.

The Moléson (2,002 metres) is a mountain of the Swiss Prealps, overlooking the region of Gruyères in the canton of Fribourg. It lies at the northern end of the chain between Lake Geneva and the valley of the Sarine.
