My personal highlight
Sep 2018 • Solo
After a lovely hike we finally arrived at the Trummer Woodcarvers. Inside is like an aladdins cave, with a variety of incredible, handmade gifts. We were made to feel so welcome and I loved the views from outside too. The whole shop and house, plus surrounding area, is stunning! Would definitely recommend a visit!

Hiked here from the center of Adelboden town. It's a great walk (don't miss getting cheese from the roadside honor farm sale fridge, and going down into the gorge). You don't need long in the shop, but allow an hour fo the hike.

The family still carves everything. Quality is top rate. And they can customize most things with amazing speed.

Note: They have a shop in town where you can see their wonderful work. When we stopped by it was staffed by the daughter of the family. They have a wide selection, but only customize items at the home workshop.

Getting there is worth it. We have been visiting the Trummer's Workshop for almost twenty years now. they are always pleased to welcome customers and will personalise a woggle etc for you. I still have one from my FIRST visit in 1999! We will be going there at the start of August with some new customers. Walking back to the main Adelboden strasse via the Cholern Gorge is interesting for the newcomer. A high on the list of things to do in Adelboden.

This place is perfect to get your Swiss souvenir from! The family who runs the shop (and has since the 1940s) takes great pride in what the do, and it shows in the beautiful carvings and keepsakes they produce. Definitely worth a visit!

They craft any name, word or sentence on any wooden subject. You should visit the workshop to appreciate how the make every single piece by hands.

Went with my Guides, and if you are a member of Guiding or Scouting, you most definitely must visit yourselves! Special woggles and pin badges with the Trefoil or Fleur de lis are a must buy souvenir of your trip.

The Trummer family are all involved with the shop and they all make parts of the pieces you can buy. They are friendly and happy to work with you to create personalised items. I was able to have my donkey 'signed' by Robert Trummer, who had carved it.
We also met Michael Trummer in their new shop in Adelboden village, he was lovely, very friendly and happy to chat about his work, Adelboden and the Swiss National Day celebrations that were happening that night.
As a non- Guiding/Scouting visitor, there are plenty of other pieces to interest. The nativity sets are exquisite, and the music boxes are also beautifully made and decorated. Their garden is liberally decorated with pieces they've carved too, so having lunch outside the shop was a treat. The view from the shop isn't half bad either!

Prices are expensive- but then again, what isn't expensive in Switzerland? Also, for the time, effort and love put into the pieces that are all hand crafted, the prices are well worth it, I only wish I'd brought more money with me! I'll definitely be going back some day to treat myself to some of the larger pieces.

What a wonderful Hike to a treasure in the Alps. Our Rangers and Leaders had such fun picking out wonderful carvings and keepsakes to bring home. They had lots of wonderful items with a great price range. The Ceiling with patches from all around the world also gives you a chill.

Trummer is a legend in Guiding circles, and rightly so. His work is wonderfully delicate. His service to Guides and Scouts goes back decades, evident by the badge collection he holds from around the world. Very friendly and accommodating!
