Hello fellow travellers,
I have a suggestion for anyone who will be in the Bernese Oberland in late July. Travel up to Mannlichen on 26th July by gondola from Wengen or cable car from Grindelwald. There is to be an event starting at about 11 a.m. (weather permitting) called a Trachtenfest. It will involve Swiss Folk Dancing - the costumes are amazing - Flag Swinging, Alphorn playing, Yodelling and Whip cracking. Free to spectators this is a true taste of Swiss traditions. We plan to go this year as we enjoyed it so much when we went a couple of years ago.
