Break with tradition, get on the bus!
Access to Charmey is very difficult on Désalpe day. Road traffic is disrupted and access from Broc to Charmey is slowed. We advise you to use the plain car parks in Broc to park your vehicle. The Fribourg Publics Transport (TPF) shuttle buses will take you to Charmey without any worries!

Parking prices
Parking in the plain (in Broc): CHF 10.-/ car
Parking in Charmey (not recommended, only accessible until 9:30 am): CHF 20.-/ car (free for motorcycles)

Please follow the signs and instructions given by the traffic officers. 
Shuttles from Broc run between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm

By bike, through the Motélon valley
For the more courageous who want to combine a day at the Désalpe in Charmey and a nice bike ride, we advise you to take the Route du Motélon from Broc. This road is closed to car traffic. It is also possible to park your bike at Broc station and take the bus to reach Charmey.

On foot, through the Gorges of the Jogne 
What better way to reach Charmey than on foot! From Broc, follow the direction of the Gorges de la Jogne and then the shores of Lac de Montsalvens.

Organised trips or group outings
Buses are authorized to go up to Charmey. To avoid slowdowns, you must plan an arrival before 9:00 am in Charmey and a departure after 2:30 pm! Parking is reserved for buses. Please follow the directions of the traffic officers at the entrance to the village.
Parking price: CHF 50.-/ bus

The right plan for people with reduced mobility
People with reduced mobility who cannot take the shuttle bus from Broc can reach Charmey by car and park in the Bains de la Gruyère car park. Please follow the directions of the traffic officers. However the Broc - Charmey road remains very disrupted.
