This alpine instrument has ruled our region for a long time.
A double bass, a fiddle, a dulcimer and a dance floor – that’s all the people of Appenzell need to be able to celebrate until the early hours. The charming custom of the “Stubete”, a relaxed get-together of folk musicians, is highly popular to this day.
The Alphorn is the quintessential Swiss national instrument. How this came about and what makes the Alphorn special comes to light when you listen to the Alphorn builder Beat Kollegger.
