15th Alp-descent Flimserstein

Every September, after the cows have spent the warm summer months on the lush pastures, the traditional alp-descent Flimserstein takes place. In front of a breathtaking scenery, the farmers lead down the decorated cows over the Scala Mola into the valley of Bargis.

Guests as well as locals gather in Bargis for a delicious breakfast, called Buura Z'morga, to watch this wonderful spectacle. The farmers round up the decorated cattle in the mountain valley and brings them back to Flims via Fidaz. With a funfair, market stands, live music and much more, the traditional Alpabzug event is a wonderful experience for both young and old.
