Travel Classics International 2016

Bern and Lucerne, Switzerland
May 18-22, 2016


Matterhorn Region
May 22-24, 2015

The terrace of Nendaz, stretching from 4265 to 4593 feet in altitude, commands a fantastic view of the Bernese, Valais and Vaud Alps. A modern holiday resort has grown up all around the center of this delightful old Valais village with its traditional timber houses, barns and grain stores.

The Alphorn has ruled the region for a long time. Each summer, the enchanting Nendaz provides the stage for the International Alphorn Festival and welcomes more than 100 participants of different nationalities. Throughout the year, too, this hauntingly beautiful instrument features prominently in the life of Nendaz, offering a chance to try it yourself -- at lessons or in week-long courses, from beginner level upwards. You'll discover that the sound you make depends on the alphorn's material, thickness and shape, and of course the way you work your lips: the greater the tension, the higher the tone.
