Le Port

Top choice arts centre in Fribourg

No address better reflects Fribourg's creative spirit. Squirrelled away in a former gas warehouse on the banks of the Sarine, the Port bursts with energy. On summer days Fribourgeois hang out on its tree-shaded, riverbank terrace between tai chi classes, visits to pop-up ateliers (workshops) and dining on seasonal lunchtime platters (Sfr20) of locally cured meats and homegrown veg.

Come dark – once the last tango class has left the dance floor – live bands, film screenings, dance nights and discos move in.
