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.


"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.

Sbrinz route - to Domodossola

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.
