For years and years, the “Chästeilet” has been marking the end of the summer.
Summer is the typical season for cheese making in the Swiss Alps. During this old mountain tradition, the farmers divide the cheese of that summer among each other in a fair way. Mägisalp (Hasliberg) in the Bernese Oberland is the happening place, and crowds of spectators flock there to celebrate.
If you cannot imagine your daily life without a delicious slice of Swiss cheese, do not miss the chance to purchase one the beautiful yellow discs straight out of farmers hands right there on the spot.
Besides all the masses of cheese, there is a lot of fun with traditional music, food, refreshments and flower-adorned cows measuring their way down to the valley after a few summer months spent high up in the mountains.
She is into travelling, photography, handicrafts and online marketing. She doesn't spend the weekends home, and she will never say "no" to an invitation to go hiking in the mountains.
