ABC-HOUSE FAMILY WEEKEND 07 AND 08 OCTOBER 2023
DOWN THE MOUNTAINS
It’s party time again on ABC and in the mountains. The Almabtrieb of the shepherds and shepherdesses with their cows in autumn is an old tradition and magnificent spectacle…. Their bells accompany us along gurgling mountain streams and beautiful scenery back to the valley.
Not afraid of heights? Then climb along to the top of the world and meet rock formations with faces, cairns or perhaps the mystical yeti. After your extended walk over the mountain peaks, you can quietly descend to the creche café, a kamishibai storytelling session or the tunnel trail….
Holla di Rittio – Holadihoo!

POSTA SILENZIOSA 09/2023
Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc., coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’
Sign up here if you want to receive Posta Silenziosa.
