GALMELINE TRAIL

The Galmeline fairy is the guide to this exceptional forest. Whether you follow the educational trail or set off under your own steam to discover the centuries-old oaks, you are guaranteed a wonderful time.

It is an easy itinerary dotted with information about birds, insects and the forest. It is also a stimulating pathway: you are invited to walk a section with bare feet, speak on the telephone with a tree trunk, recognise shapes in the stumps, play, listen and feel.

The Galm forest has a remarkable oak, the Grandfather. The 300 year-old tree is 44 metres tall. A large gash serves as a reminder that it was once struck by lightning, but no adverse weather has ever weakened it.

It was Napoleon Bonaparte who, in the 1803 Act of Mediation, attributed the Galm forest to the canton of Fribourg, which still manages it directly. These 255 green hectares therefore form a geographical municipality in their own right, a unique case in Switzerland.
