Swiss Wrestling and Alpine Celebrations


Every three years Switzerland is celebrating one of the national sports Swiss wrestling (in German: Schwingen, in French: Lutte Suisse) or also called 'Hosenlupf'.


The tackling takes place in a ring of sawdust. The wrestlers wear special pants over their trousers and hold each other by them and try to bring the opponent to a downfall. The looser has to touch the ground with both shoulder blades or two-thirds of the back.

We, from Swiss Quality UK, would like to congratulate Christian Stucki to his victory! Thank you to Franz Muheim, Dieter Hanimann, Gabriel Galliker-Etter and SRF for the pictures!
