Vacation like Heidi on the alp...
Every year in Mid-June the traditional cattle-drive takes place. Hundreds of cows, calves, goats and sheep from the valley spend their "summer holidays" with us on the alp and graze right in front of our house.
Here you literally spend your summer break just like Heidi!
Of course this also includes lots of alpine huts offering food and beverages. They are easily reachable on foot. Fresh milk, butter, alp cheese and various other delicacies from the "Karnischen Region" - directly from the producer!
