Swiss Traditions Workshop
Experience Switzerland's rich traditions
Choose from the following exciting and amusing activities and create your own personal event. An unforgettable experience.
The Sounds of the Mountains
Playing the Alphorn, the delicate arts of 'Talerschwingen' (in which a coin is slowly spun around a porcelain bowl to produce a sound) and 'Geisslechlöpfe' (cracking the whip), the authentic Swiss accordion and 'Löffele' (playing the spoons) and flag swinging. Go on, have a go at it yourself!
Crossbow shooting - just like William Tell
With a solid wooden crossbow (alternative: crossbow pistol) the participants try to hit the apple-sized centre on the target.
'Trycheln' – or the sound of the cow bells
The rhythmic pealing of enormous cow bells could be said to be the sound of Switzerland – you may find it's not as easy as it looks.
Chopping trees just like in the olden days: try your skills at the two-man saw. The nailing competition is also a great laugh!
Wine tasting competition
Who recognises the quality wines? The participants try to allocate the wines to their country of origin.
Swiss folks dancing in traditional dress
Learn a simple step and you’ll be enchanted by the magic of Swiss traditions.
Anybody can do it. Forget your inhibitions and we show you how it’s done. You’ll love it!
Distil an aromatic schnaps from cider, beer or wine.
Driving the tractor
Not speed but precision are the required skills in this game.
Will you manage for the fork to stick in the straw bale?
Get the balance right and be the first through the finishing line. Great fun!
Barbecue in the barn
Let us spoil you with a delicious and sumptuous barbeque in the farmyard or in the cosy ambiance of the barn.
All our venues feature barns and other sheltered places which will make your activities completely independent of the weather.
