We asked you which instrument the alphorn is most similar to. Find out here if you were the lucky winner of our wristwatch in an exclusive Euromaxx design.
The alphorn is a wind instrument traditionally made from wood, and it’s considered the national symbol of Switzerland. It produces a loud, penetrating sound that can be heard up to 10 kilometers away. In the past it was used as a means of communication in Switzerland. Lots of you sent in answers to our quiz question: which instrument is the alphorn similar to? The correct answer is the didgeridoo, a traditional instrument of the Aboriginal Australians. As with the alphorn, the player vibrates the lips and blows a steady flow of air through a long, wooden tube. Thank you to everyone who wrote in!
As a prize we’re giving away a wristwatch in an exclusive Euromaxx design. And the lucky winner is Stefan Mummert from Mount Waverley in Australia, who got the answer spot on — the Australian didgeridoo.
