For whom the cow bell tolls
Visit one of the last remaining cow bell manufacturers of the Alps, where you can discover the process that takes nearly 6 months to complete. One of the very few cow bell manufacturers of the Alps has allowed us to take a look beyond the glass screen. The visit is usually part of a one-day tour with our local guide Teresa, taking you to many hidden sights of the 1924 Olympic Winter Games host town. Observe the work in progress of this fabulous working environment, then have the owner customize your own personalized cow bell with your initials engraved on it.
