Innovative and breathtaking
Multimedia show « Gruyères »

« Gruyères » is a thrilling multimedia show, an alchemy of high definition images, music, light and sound. 18 minutes duration, available in 8 languages, endowed with a dynamic scenography, this piece is an innovation in journeys through historical sites. It brings the visitor out of time, on a discovery of the wonderful story of the castle. Without forgetting the imaginary side with the most beautiful legends of the Gruyère region shown in animated images.

For this show of a new kind, an exceptional storyteller : Chalamala, the emblematic madman from the Tales of Gruyères. Under the features of the magisterial comedian Roger Jendly, he becomes the living memory of the castle.

« Gruyères » will be showing every day in the new projection room. This space, installed in the entirely refurbished old caretakers lodge building, combines with refinement high technology and conservation of the patrimony.
