A commitment to tradition

Myths and legends, customs and traditions, festivals celebrated with enthusiasm and interest by the people in the past – in the Aletsch Arena, all that is still alive today and maintained with pride and commitment. For the locals, it is a sign of their attachment to their home region. For visitors, it means taking part in a living tradition which has been passed down through the generations.
