  • Unusual culture

    Living tradition in Switzerland has an enormous wealth.
    Swiss Alps, Mountain farmers, instruments like the marvelous Alpenhorn and some loude Yodelling!

    Switzerland has an extensive amateur music scene. Every village has a choir or a brass bandAlpine farming.
    • Some traditionnal instruments:
      • accordion, Schwyzerörgeli (a type of diatonic button accordion), Oergeli, a diminutive form of the word Orgel (organ)

Violin, bass violin, clarinet, or TrĂĽmpi (Jew’s harp)? Yes! And, of course, the typical Swiss …horn -> the Alphorn musical and signaling instrument used by the herdsmen and many yodeling choirs since the 19th century.

  • schwingen

Schwingen it is a style of folk wrestling native to Switzerland, more specifically the pre-alpine parts of German-speaking Switzerland. Wrestlers wear Schwingerhosen (« wrestling breeches ») with belts that are used for taking holds. Throws and trips are common because the first person to pin his or her opponent’s shoulders to the ground wins the bout. Once every three years, pairs of men meet in sawdust rings to test their strength, balance and ability to throw their partner to the ground. The Federal Wrestling and Alpine Games Festival is the most prestigious event for Swiss-style wrestling. The festival also features other unique Swiss sports – hornussen and stone throwing – as well as the best yodellers, flag-throwers and alphorn players in Switzerland.


    A shady origins in the Swiss Alps as a dish for poor farmers who sought to make use of all their left-over ingredients during the tough winter months. On a trip to the Swiss Alps you can dig into regional specialities like raclette … To be clear, you can eat it all the year and around the country. However has we said in Swiss… it preferable to eat it when you find an « R » in your month ….from SeptembeR to ApRil – yeaRRRRR 🙂


  • Autumn…It was the time of harvest and thanksgiving, the time to spend money and party. Plenty of opportunity to do so: Markets, restaurants, dances, stalls, and more. Today many of these autumn traditions have retained their character as for example the Wine festivals in Vaud, Valais or Ticino. Try the picturesque Saint-Martin feast ot the market @ Chevenez as well as the many chestnut festivals in Ticino and the Bregaglia valley and ..and…encore plus ailleurs!
