Alphorn blowing and flag-twirling

Alphorn blowing and flag-twiring are two of the oldest customs in the Alpine region. More Swiss and traditional is hardly possible.

The alphorn

The alphorn is an authentically Swiss instrument and an impressive piece of Swiss folklore. Its sound touches people’s souls and its music can induce feelings of well-being in the body of the listener and the player.


The flag twirlers throw their fluttering flags through the air while exuding an amazing inner calm, as if it was the easiest thing in the world to perform. There are over 99 different types of twirl in total.
