Departing from the domain of Faverges, a symbolic place for the canton of Fribourg, several hikes will be organised early in the morning to allow the people of Fribourg to make their way to the festival, quite uniquely on foot. Accompanied by mid-mountain guides, participants will remember their magical journey in the vineyards of Lavaux long thereafter.
