There will be no big fireworks in Brunnen on 1 August 2021. However, we have prepared an attractive alternative programme.
The alphorn - Swiss, traditional, original - you will bring out the special sound on this instrument with the help of professional instructors.
After 1800 the alphorn had more or less lost its original function in the mountains. Instead, it conquered the hearts of listeners as a musical instrument from the 19th century onwards. It became a tourist attraction and a symbol for Switzerland. The alphorn offers native sounds and an impressive piece of Swiss folklore. Depending on the landscape, this magnificent instrument can be heard from five to ten kilometres away. The sound touches people's souls and its vibrations are able to trigger feelings of well-being in the body of the listener and the player.
Get involved in the experiment and get to know the alphorn. Only after you have tried it yourself will you be able to feel the fascination of this instrument in a new way. You will be guided through the taster course by experienced alphorn players. You can look forward to a course full of sound.
