The festivities begin in the morning with the ringing of the cowbells called "Ylüte der Zügleten". Then, at intervals of thirty minutes or so, Gstaad’s farming families lead their flower-adorned cow herds through the village, along the promenade. Some will have been on the move for several hours already, making their way down from the mountain pastures to the valley. In-between, visitors attending the Züglete have the option of enjoying the Menuhin Festival concert at the Kapälli Gstaad before the festivities continue with the arrival of the cattle herds, the pride and joy of their owners. A fine example of traditional customs and the authentically alpine.
