An Ascent to the Alpine Pastures - An Important Mountain Tradition

This important event for the local farmers is also not to be missed by visitors. To the sound of bells and accordions, join the farmers and their herds of cows and goats as they ascend from the valley. This friendly and convivial event can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
