Swiss Wrestling in the loveliest of settings – at the invitation of the Brienz wrestling club
Traditional Swiss wrestling has become a new favourite sport for the Swiss. At Ballenberg, in a lovely setting, this down-to-earth sport can be watched close-up. The Ballenberg-Schwinget is the first "Schwingfest" of the season and therefore especially popular with the major players of traditional Swiss wrestling. The strong sportsmen fight it out on the meadow in front of the Farmhouse from Madiswil BE (321) following all the "Hosenlupf" rules.

Guests with a special concession, an online ticket or a gift voucher for one entry may redeem them, however they are not entitled to a refund of the price difference.

The tickets for the wrestling festival can only be bought on the actual day of the "Ballenberg Swiss Wrestling" at the Ballenberg entrance desk.

It’s not possible to reserve seats. Early arrival recommended. If there is bad weather the Wrestling Festival could be cancelled. If this is the case, up-to-date information about the event can be obtained on Friday, 11th April 2020 from 16.00 hrs at www.ballenberg.ch or by calling the telephone number 1600.
