Switzerland's best wrestlers compete at the Unspunnen-Schwinget and swing for a wreath.
The Unspunnen-Schwinget takes place only every six years, always in the year after a federal event. Since 1981, the Unspunnen-Schwinget has been counted among the federal events, just like the Federal Wrestling and Alpine Festival and the Kilchberg Schwinget. It is the most historic of the three wrestling festivals. For the first time, the Unspunnen-Schwinget was held in 1805 as part of the Unspunnen Festival, which has been held every twelve years and in 2019 for only the 10th time ever. Up to and including 2006, the Unspunnen-Schwinget took place not far from the Unspunnen ruins, but due to increasing public interest, it was moved to the Höhematte in the heart of Interlaken in 2011. Here, a stadium for around 15,000 spectators was built for this year's event in 2019.
