Experiencing Alpine Culture not only means sleeping on an Alp, but also working on an Alp or farm. Visitors help with making hay, mucking stalls, milking cows, or cheese-making, and takes away a feeling for life as a mountain farmer.

On the Adventure Day on Alp Dürrenwald, guests will learn about the life of a mountain farmer by helping with haymaking, replacing straw in the cowshed, milking or cheese making. Also part of the diverse “Alpkultur” offerings are a visit to a show dairy, experiencing animal husbandry, visiting farmsteads, sleeping on an Alp and guided hiking tours.

A special highlight for children and families is the 7,000-square-meter Alpine playground and meeting place on the Lenkerseeli. It includes an Alpine hut, a petting zoo, various playground equipment built from natural materials, fire pits for barbecuing, and a small train with a steam locomotive. Many hours of fun are guaranteed!

Every year, in mid-October, the Alpine Culture Days take place. They include a traditional festival and Alpine games such as the Hornussen tournament (an Alpine ball game), the election of Miss Lenk (the most beautiful cow), the Alpine cattle descent and other events.
