Leysin - Fête et Festival
Mid-summer is one of the most famous alpine festivals. It is intended for all people who love Swiss folklore, animals, the mountains and their shepherds. Heritage and Tradition are the key words that will transport you in a friendly and friendly atmosphere.
Historically, this was the time when livestock owners and their families went up to the mountain pastures to control the milk yield of the cows and to distribute the butter and cheese as evenly as possible after the quench. We took the opportunity to bring fresh bread, salt, sugar or coffee to the cows. "What began as a simple commercial encounter quickly became a pretext for a beautiful celebration" including worship, meals, country music and dances.
