The alphorn concert with flag-twirling is held by the shore of Lake Lucerne in Brunnen. It showcases two of the oldest customs in the alpine region – authentically Swiss and traditional.
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.
The local cultural heritage association thrills visitors from around the world. As the flags twirl artfully through the air, the warm, deep sounds of the alphorn can be heard. Those who wish to, can try it out themselves. From June to August, the alphorn concerts with flag-twirling take place every Wednesday evening between 8 pm and 9:30 pm in the village centre and on the lakeside promenade.
