Hornussen tournament and party

The crowning finale of the AlpKultur® days Lenk

Hornusserturnier Lenk vor Wildstrubel

To end the annual AlpKultur® days Lenk with a bang, Lenk hosts a hornussen tournament with teams from all over Switzerland. After the tournament, join the village locals and the hornussen teams in celebrating the vibrantly coloured parade.

In Lenk, 12 hornussen teams from all over Switzerland compete against each other. The tournament as well as the finale of the AlpKultur® days Lenk really gets going in the evening during the hornussen party celebrations in the marquee on Gadeplatz. Every year, different bands or a DJ provide entertainment and create atmosphere.

What is a «nouss» and how does one throw it as far as possible from the bock? Who does not only want to watch can try himself in the Hornussen. After the members of the hornussen association Utzigen teach you all about the tips and tricks to playing Hornussen, you will have the chance to throw your first nouss from the bock. Because great prizes await the participants who beat the Nouss furthest away from the bock. These will be presented at the announcement of rank.
