History of the Simmental

Immerse yourself in the history of the Simmental and learn more about the places and people in the region. Small excursions into the world of legends are also included.

Very important: it's "an der Lenk"!

Lenk is etymologically derived from the transformation of "An der langen Egg", "lange Ecke", "Die Langeck", contracted "Die Läng'k", French "la Lenk". So much for the results of modern linguistic research. Hence "an die Lenk"!
