Rollibock: the mythical protector of the Aletsch Arena
The mythical Rollibock, who lives somewhere in the ice of the Great Aletsch Glacier, is a wild, ferocious-looking beast. Yet he loves nature and has a strong sense of justice.
He loves the stillness and solitude of the magnificent mountain arena, which he has sworn to protect. However, legend has it that the Rollibock can also get very nasty if anyone deliberately harms the countryside or the animals that live there.
Nowadays, the Rollibock is no longer seen as fearsome. In fact, he has a whole lot of friends in the Aletsch Arena: there is a Rollibock Club and a wide range of events are held in his honour.
