Alpine Cattle Descent Chalet (2914.8M)


Alpine descent is the authentic Swiss tradition which is celebrated in autumn all over Switzerland. Visitors who are lucky enough to be at this once-a-year event can witness the core of Swiss mountain culture. When the season turns to autumn, cows adorned with flowers and ribbons descend from the Alpine pastures after spending the summer months in the mountains. They are accompanied by the traditionally dressed farmers and their cowherds, ringing the iconic cowbells all the way down to the valley.  Alpine descent is welcomed by enthusiastic audience in the village, with whom they celebrate the day with large festivals including farmers’ markets and traditional music.
This exquisitely crafted clock has the familiar Swiss chalet-style veranda, as well as a staircase leading to the lawn below. On the left side of the chalet, stands a beautifully hand-coloured cow with a large cow bell and flowers around its neck. Off to the right side of the scene you’ll find a long fountain well, painted lovingly by hand. Figurines up on the balcony waltz joyously and the alphorn player addresses the arrival of the descent.
