Self-service washing room (buanderie/launderette) in fribourg?

Hi. Good monday to every one! Does anyone know if there is a self-service buanderie (where you pay coins and can use machines to wash and dry clothes) in fribourg? Thanks.

Thanks a lot.

Used to be one near the station, but I think it's gone now. Can't find anything in the phone book or on local.ch.

Re: Self-service washing room (buanderie) in fribourg?

Anyone know why there aren't more self service laundromats?

Seems with all the wash room issues, it would be a hit

Thoughts?

Because Pauline's dead and Dot's retired.

Re: Self-service washing room (buanderie) in fribourg?

I saw this advertised on the Fribourg bus the other day....

They do have washing machines for use for CHF3 - not a self-service laundromat, and most people on EF are probably not those in true need of such facilities, so not sure how the staff would take to everyone turning up to pop on a load of smalls.

Looks more like a drop-in centre for down-and-outs ..... and a hike (or bus trip) up to Schoenberg, to boot.

You've got it the wrong way round. Foreigners do indeed have issues with communal laundry facilities, but the Swiss do not (which is partially why the foreigners do...) so in fact there's much less demand because everyone has access to laundry in their apartment block.
