Surprise! The 21st door on the Advent calendar is almost bursting with excitement. Open it, and you’ll find yourself in the midst of a vortex of winter melodies, village chit-chat, and hearty fare. Two weeks before Christmas, Adelboden Dorfplatz is the scene of an annual celebration where the coldest months of the year receive the warmest of welcomes. On Saturday 14 December, all the anticipation finally finds its voice.
For a start, it’s loud. The Edelwiis Cowbell Ringers will be heralding the coming season with clappers and traditional bells. Then it gets warm. Spectators will be served free Chäsbrägel (melted cheese on bread) and punch from 4 pm onwards. Finally, the mood becomes more contemplative. As the daylight begins to fade, the huge Christmas tree will be illuminated for the first time. What more could you want from this festive trilogy? With a full stomach, ringing ears and bright eyes, the stage is set for some incredible winter months.


FIS Ski World Cup Adelboden

For the last 64 years, Adelboden has been proud to host this international ski event. The AUDI FIS Ski
World Cup attracts over 40 000 ski fans here each year, transforming Adelboden into a popular hive of
activity once again on 11 / 12 January 2020. It all kicks off on Friday 10 January at 4pm with the World Cup Show in Boden. The pit lane and a chance to mix with the stars, the warm-up party with giant ski show, and of course the all-important draw for starting places in the giant slalom on Saturday ensure an exciting start to the race weekend.

The start number drawing and the after Party will take place in the weltcup-village Boden.

On Saturday at 10.30am, it all begins in earnest: the world’s best male skiers attempt the most challenging of all giant slalom courses with individual times measured to a hundredth of a second. Those able to conquer the 1290 metre steep downhill run twice can rely on the vocal and enthusiastic support of the crowd.

The slalom race on Sunday at 10.30am offers just as much excitement and really puts competitors to the test. Chuenisbärgli doesn’t leave any room for a single mistake and the one who eventually wins is truly the best.

We’re already looking forward to another unforgettable race weekend!
