Tradition

Alpabzug in the Lower Engadin

Alpabzug in Sent im Unterengadin
The alpine summer is coming to an end and it is time to bring the cattle back to the village. We hear the ringing of bells from far away, until they finally pass us, the festively decorated animals. Everyone comes together on the village square and together we enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of the festival restaurant.
