Does anyone know the time this cheese dividing festival in the Justistal begins. The Sigriswill tourism web site shows 10:00 a.m and the Interlaken tourism web site shows 11:00 a.m. I inquired by email to the Beatenberg tourism and was answered it starts at 2:00 p.m. I know this can not be right because the last shuttle leaving Grön for Sigriswill is at 2:30 p.m. and Alpabzüge (cows returning) from the Justis valley runs 2:00-6:00 p.m..

I also get mixed information on the route of Alpabzüge. Does it go to Sigriswil or to Beatenberg? Or maybe both?

Any details about this festival is appreciated.

Wow, that is a lot of conflicting times for one festival!

I'll give you one more for good measure - the Interlaken tourism website shows 10:30am now and the Swiss Tourism website says 11am. I'm not sure you you should trust any answer you get and just go for 10am so you won't miss anything.

As for the Alpabzüge, there are a few different events noted here - it would be best to try and contact the one directly that you are looking for as I can't find specific routes.

It is hard to plan out these types of trips to small villages as they run on what I call island-time. :) Gotta travel loose.
