Customs and traditions are an integral part of our region and are still kept. Discover our traditions!

Return of cattle

The return of cattle is one of the best known, traditional Alpine Herdsman festivals. After a four-months summer spent in the hills, the colourfully decorated cattle returns to the valley.

Cheese

Milk, rennet, salt and time. This recipe has been used for centuries to produce the finest cheeses. The traditional craft of cheese making can even be experienced in some alpine cheese dairies.
