Have you taken a peek at the Saturday weather forecast? It's time to grab your swimsuit and prepare your rubber boat! This Saturday, August 12th, a one-of-a-kind event awaits: the annual Gummiboot Openair, meticulously arranged by Jeunesse Saanenland, will unfold on the serene waters of Lake Hornberg.

Join in on a delightful journey by first ascending the Hornegglis chairlift and then a short hike to the beautiful Lake Hornberg. Once there, you will be serenaded by the melodic tunes of "Lieblingslieder," a cool three-member cover band hailing from Bern. Picture yourself basking in their enchanting melodies while comfortably afloat on your rubber boat. No need to worry about sustenance and refreshments – delectable food and drinks will be conveniently stationed near the shoreline.

But the excitement doesn't end on the water. As the sun begins its descent, the festivities continue with a dance celebration led by the local maestro of beats, DJ “Sexy Kilo". Nestled within this rugged mountain terrain, positioned at a remarkable elevation of 1800 meters above sea level, you'll be treated to a stunning panorama that serves as an impressive backdrop. Expect an evening filled with splendid live music, a vibrant atmosphere, and an irresistible dose of positive energy.


The passionate team at Jeunesse Saanenland anticipates a sea of boats filling the lake, contributing to the vibrant tapestry of this remarkable event. 

Last minute tickets until Friday, check out the website and ship ahoy!
