«Gilihüsine» — Early form of Hornussen
Gilihüsine – Revival of an ancient tradition
On beautiful Sunday afternoons in the olden days, the people of Bettmeralp and Betten would go up to Lake Bettmersee to have some fun. Here on the slightly sloping terrain below the lake, they played Gilihüsine – a primitive form of Hornussen – with great passion and enthusiasm. We want to revive this beautiful old tradition at Bettmeralp.
On Sunday, 20 September 2020, the 11th Gilihüsine Meet will take place on the field by Lake Bettmersee.
Whether expert or beginner, everyone is welcome to watch the traditional game, have a go themselves or even enter a team.
