Its Old City, one of the best-maintained in Switzerland, sits on a small rocky hill above the valley of the Sarine.

In the early period, Fribourg consisted of four distinct inner city districts: Burg, Au, La Neuveville, and Spital.
The city developed rapidly, which led to its first expansion: the Burg district expanded to the west in 1224, a town was established across the river in 1254, and in 1280 development began near Place Python.
