Who has what it takes to be a farmer? Show your skills in typical Swiss posts.
The somewhat different contest!
This highly original contest doesn’t focus on top sporting achievement but, instead, improvisation, skill, keen powers of observation and accuracy. In all cases, the Farmhouse Olympics will leave you wanting more!
Join in and cheer on
A wide range of fun activities await you − whether flag or coin spinning, alphorn blowing or on target with the archery or blowpipe shooting! The nail hitting competition is also sure to test you whilst the gold transport will require clarity and the iron throwing calm. After milking the docile (fake) cow Elsa (in Filzbach, a real cow), you will continue to the treasure hunt with an avalanche transceiver (search device).
And another thing…
Particularly the non sporty participants have the best chances of being amongst the winners. In these Olympics smaller groups usually compete against one another which ensures a great team spirit and excitement. Ultimately, though, what really counts, is taking part. By the way, you don’t have to have an actual farm − the event can also take place in a forest hut, school building or even indoors.
