The village of Jaun is located at the end of the Jaun valley. It is known for its waterfall and its unique cemetery, but above all it is home to the Gastlosen: a majestic mountain range unlike any other in Switzerland.
Jaun and Im Fang are the only German-speaking communities in the district of Gruyères.
The old church of Jaun (Cantorama) serves today as a concert hall.
The concerts are mainly classical vocal and instrumental works from the Renaissance to the modern age.
In addition, regional songs, folk music and folklore as well as jazz also have their place.
The name Cantorama refers to the combination of hearing (canto) and seeing (rama).
The acoustics are excellent and make every concert a unique experience.
The bright space of the former church with the ceiling paintings by Gottfried Locher, the medieval paintings in the choir arch and the light-flooded tower bay received a crowning touch with the installation of the reconstructed organ from 1786 in 2011.
During the tour you will learn about the village, but also many details about the Cantorama.
Continue to a leisurely lunch and be surprised for the journey home.
