Wrestling has turned into a new popular sport for the Swiss. At Ballenberg visitors can follow this long-established native sport first hand. Ballenberg’s fine houses provide a brilliant setting for it: on the meadow in front of the House from Madiswil BE the burly wrestlers compete according to all the rules of the Hosenlupf, or “trouser lifting“.
Reserve date Easter Saturday 19 April
