In April 1977 the «Aarberger Puce» a flea- and antiques-market, was founded by a handful of idealists and two dozens dealers. Since then the market has been held twice a year, always the last Friday and Saturday in April and in August. The number of exhibitors has risen to 250 and the «Puce» - as the market is commonly referred to - has become one of the greatest and most atmospheric flea-markets in Switzerland. At the end of April and August, thousands of visitors come to Aarberg - a beautiful historic village - to get hold of a collector's item, to relax and to have a look to rummage through the wide range of objects on offer.Öffnungszeiten: Fr 09 - 19 Uhr, Sa 09 - 17 Uhr
The Motrac Meeting at the Ballenberg Open-Air Museum highlights a fascinating bit of history from the era of the mechanization of agriculture. Motrac are old agricultural machines specially built for farming in the mountains. The company "Motrac Motor Mowers and Tractors plc Zürich", founded in 1937, built single-axle vehicles and tractors. The firm developed innovative solutions such as the world's first small tractor with four-wheel drive, articulated steering and steering wheel. Tune in to the infectious enthusiasm of the Motrac fans!
