Weekend of Traditions Bettmeralp

15. – 17.09.2023
Cultivated with pride, lived out with joy – that is certainly true of the traditions and customs in the Aletsch Arena. The delightful Weekend of Traditions means that anyone can experience this living approach to history for themselves.

Prepare to find yourself transported back to a time when running water and electrical sockets were still something of a luxury.

Full details 2023 to follow, but here’s a taste of what to expect:
On the Saturday, look forward to a street festival featuring traditional music, crafts and delicacies of bygone days, in line with the motto – Inschi Choscht, inschers Handwärch, inschi Traditione! [Our food, crafts and traditions!]

A guest canton will be represented by a yodelling club that will provide musical accompaniment for the open-air Mass in the morning.

On the Sunday, Gilihüsine (an early form of Hornussen) is among the activities. And if you like, you can even take part in the tournament.
