Your private Alphorn Day

Spend a day playing alphorn in the midst of stunning scenery. All our destinations are within a one-hour drive by minivan. Some alps are then reached by cable car or after an easy hike.

We lend you a personal alphorn for the day and provide 2-3 hours of alphorn tuition. You will learn the basics of alphorn blowing and hear about the background of the instrument. At the end of the day, you will be able to play a simple melody together. There is also enough time for a break in a mountain restaurant or simply to enjoy the clean mountain air. Additional options (e.g. visit to a cheese factory) for certain destinations.

Price for the group: 600 CHF base price plus 100 CHF per person 

(i.e. 1 person: 700 CHF / 2 persons: 800 CHF / 3 persons: 900 CHF / 4 persons: 1000 CHF / 5 persons: 1100 CHF / 6 persons: 1200 CHF)

You can chose your destinaton form the  list below. For some, we may use a cable car or gondola lift. Also, expected walking time varies – click on the cards to see a more detailed description.
