in 3 stages


Before sketching out together the present and future of La Poya, let us honour the area’s rich history.


After more than 70 years of dedicated and distinguished service of the Caserne de la Poya (Poya Barracks), the army returned the keys of the site to Canton Fribourg in 2023. From now on, it’s up to us all to invent the future of this place of military history!


Do you have projects for an association, a group of inhabitants of the Canton of Fribourg, or a company? Share your ideas, needs and desires with us!

Let’s Reinvent La Poya Together!

The Caserne de la Poya (Poya Barracks), an army training and command centre for over 70 years, has shaped the Swiss and Fribourg military history.

Today, the Canton of Fribourg has taken back possession of the site and is preparing the future of this huge plot on the edge of town. Indeed, the area with the buildings extends over 45,000 m2, to which are added the 55’000 m2 of the neighbouring park!


for the Interim Period

Initially, the premises will be offered in their current state for rental for Fribourg associations, groups of inhabitants, companies or students for a period of 3 to 5 years.

Do you have an idea or a project?
We invite you to fill in the form to tell us about your needs (until 30 April 2024).

Registration is now closed.
