From time immemorial, the Alphorn has been associated with Swiss
heritage. It's as much a part of genuine Swiss culture as its chocolate,
its watches and the holes in its Emmental cheese.
The pipe-shaped Alphorn is among the earliest musical instruments used
in Switzerland. And its popularity has grown tremendously in recent
years. Both locals and guests enjoy the melodious sound of
the Alp horn in Switzerland's high mountain regions.
The Alphorn is supposed to bring inner peace to those who hear it
and provide shelter from hectic modern life.
