How to get to the Castle

Gruyères is easily accessible by public or private transport. As the town is closed to traffic, it takes between 10 and 20 minutes on foot to reach the castle from the Gruyères-Ville (bus) station or the various parking lots (travel time varies depending on the parking lot: P1, P2 and P3).
