But this would be obvious and there are for sure already tons of blogs mentioning this national instrument and describing it much better than I could possibly do.
Therefore I am not going into details of this weird musical instrument which looks like a long elephant nose and produce typical sounds which get their better definition within the Swiss mountains.
I was just surprised and amazed one Sunday at the beginning of October when I saw a group of people (men and women in black!) arriving at Zurich lake with their presumptuous covers containing the famous pipes…they prepared their instruments and they started playing!
Very lucky! I could get this free concert without climbing any mountain, or walking through complicate paths, but just sitting next to the quiet water of the lake under a warm sun.
