Hi Rebecca _
<<"cows returning from the alp? Where do you recommend and when does it happen?">>
The world "alp" should be in the plural..."alps."
Many places on different days in the Fall.
I've seen them above Buochs and Emmeten, in Beckenreid, in Schwyz.....just because I happened to be there on the day that the farmers decided to bring them down. That date is set by the farmers, and varies by geography ( temperature/climate.)
(By the way, some travel by helicopter...)
I'll see if I can find more specific information ...but not for a few days. Have some traveling to do, my self.
I am sure there is a whole lot of stuff on the internet, and if I could remember the German word for the processions, I'd suggest that you search for that term.
Probably, some one else will rescue me. ;-(
