Customs and traditions are a big part of everyday life in the Simmental valley. And the fortnight of AlpKultur® Days in Lenk offers guests an insight into this authentic and unspoilt Simmental way of life. There are lots of different workshops on offer. Participants have the opportunity to learn all about the art of Simmental silhouette paper cutting, weaving on a large loom, taking part in cattle judging competitions, making up some of the floral wreaths that adorn the cows, or trying their hand at hitting the ‘nouss’, or puck, at the Hornussen tournament, a traditional Swiss sport. The Forum for Music and Movement also offers courses on Swiss folk music throughout the fortnight.
