“Schwingen” is a traditional Swiss form of wrestling that has recently seen a surge in popularity. The competitors, wearing special breeches made of jute, fight on a big sawdust ring. At the beginning of each round, the wrestlers grab each other by the breeches; the first to throw his opponent and pin his shoulders to the ground wins. This form of wrestling evolved long ago among herdsmen and shepherds, as a way of testing each other’s strength; today, it is one of Switzerland’s best-loved sports.

The national championships take place every three years – 2013 in Burgdorf in the Emmental. For novice spectators, an ideal introduction is the Kemmeriboden Schwinget near Schangnau in late August, an atmospheric, authentic contest regarded as a cradle of the sport.
