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. Around a hundred cows are gathered in the high valley of Bargis in front of a breathtaking scenery.

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.

Online ticket sales is closed. Tickets for the bus are only available on site.

Alp-descent Flimserstein takes place

The Alpabzug Flimserstein on Saturday, 17 September, will take place as planned. The weather forecast has only a minor impact on the programme. For safety reasons, the most delicate part of the descent, from the alp via the steep Scala Mola down to Bargis, will not be carried out. Accordingly, the alpine descent will start from Bargis. The updated programme can be found here:
