Chästeilet Justistal

Our culture and customs tip for the upcoming Friday is the "Chästeilet" (cheese-sharing) in the Justistal valley.

Known as Fasnacht, the largest Swiss popular festival is unusual for two reasons.

And ridiculous amounts of confetti are involved, thrown by riders on floats or dumped on unsuspecting passersby.

Gruyères, Switzerland Gruyères is famous for its namesake cheese, whose mild, nutty flavor melts so well in fondue. But few are familiar with the town itself, a medieval hamlet in the upper valley of the Saane River in western Switzerland.
