La Pierreuse Nature Reserve, Château-d’Oex

The Pierreuse Nature Reserve in Château-d’Oex covers an exceptional area in the Alps of the Lake Geneva Region and is a place of refuge for ibex. Etivaz AOC cheese is also made on these Alpine pastures.


Réserve naturelle de la Pierreuse

La Pierreuse nature reserve is located to the south of Château-d’Oex in the area of the Gummfluh massif. It also includes the upper region of Etivaz to the north of Pic Chaussy. This characteristic landscape of the Pre-Alps covers an area of 34 square km and contains several valleys dominated by calcareous rock faces.

Wild fauna and rare species abound here: ibex, chamois, marmots, three-toed woodpeckers, owls, royal eagles, lynx and black grouse.

The region features wild nature with great geological abundance and remarkable sub-Alpine vegetation, as well as traditional Alpine meadows, the home of the famous Alpine cheese Etivaz.

In 1945, Aurèle Sandoz bequeathed Pierreuse to Château-d'Oex with the idea of turning it into a nature reserve. In 1958, Pro Natura was entrusted with the management of the territory.

La Pierreuse offers exceptional hikes and is the symbol of the “Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut Regional Nature Park" project.
