Dear guests and visitors
Due to construction works, the railroad line between Stansstad and Engelberg will be closed from 22 March to 18 April 2021. Rail replacement buses will operate.
Säumer combine nature and pleasure.
To kick off the Säumer week, a Säumer festival takes place every two years in Stansstad. Immerse yourself in the good old days, when the Säumer shaped everyday life.
Marvel at the old and partly almost forgotten craftsmanship. You can also taste typical regional specialities.
"Säumer" has been a craft for centuries, which requires competence with a pack animal for transport services in difficult terrain. An unshakeable character and the responsibility istinguish the "Säumer" for this unique transport trade.
On Sunday in the early afternoon a Säumer train starts: A Säumer train with many mammals and hemmers as well as a companion of hikers. Together the group takes the Sbrinz route to Domodossola under their feet for a week. Every evening, a reception awaits the participants at the stage location with a local festival, where the culture of the valley community can be felt.
every two years (2021, 2023, 2025…)
