Celebrating traditions

1st August - Swiss National Day

On the 1st of August, the Swiss National Day is celebrated throughout Switzerland. The village market with a varied supporting program in the car free village offers guests colourful impressions and experiences during the day. The CVP national council Martin Candinas holds the ceremonial speech for the Swiss National Day in the evening.
