Short and to the point.

Program overview

Alp Spektakel
Every year, in October, the country and alpine economy is on every farmer's calendar far and wide. To meet after a rigorous alpine summer, to exchange and, of course, to bring to gourmets the products made with heart and mind.
In more than 15 years, many tons of the finest Prättigau alp cheese and many a lovingly modeled «Mödeli» alp butter went through the Chlus out into the wide world and into the stomachs of connoisseurs who appreciate to know how their food is produced.


on both days (Saturday + Sunday)

Saturday 10.00 am until 5.00 pm
Sunday 10.00 am until 4.00 pm
