St. Stephan airfield festival

Nostalgic attractions on the ground or in the air

Flugplatzfest St. Stephan

Once a year the airborne past comes to life once again in Obersimmental. The white «Papyrus» Hunter and its flying counterparts are at the centre of attention.

The old Swiss Army fighter jets regularly attract thousands of visitors to their former bases in St. Stephan. On the airfield festival the planes will be on show and many others are expected to make an appearance. A resounding experience for both old and young!

The airfield festival will give you the chance to book onto helicopter passenger rides or experience a flight on a virtual flight simulator. If you want to stock up on various items to do with flying and the in-flight experience, head to the several stands at the festival.


The airfield festival 2023 is cancelled.

Instead of the airfield festival, a fly-in will take place in St. Stephan. All aviation enthusiasts are invited to come to St. Stephan with their aircraft on Saturday, 26 August. The Classic Formation with the DC-3 and the three Beech 18s, an Antanov 2 and several P-3s have already confirmed their participation. We are optimistic that around 60 aircraft will fly to St. Stephan.

24 – 26 August 2023
