Schellenursli & Flurina mit Geissen

Schellen Ursli celebrates his 75th anniversary – Excursion and lecture

07.10.2020 to 08.10.2020

«High up in the mountains, far from here, there lives a little boy just like you …», begins the story of Schellen-Ursli. Schellen-Ursli, or Uorsin in the original Romansh, is a children’s story written by author Selina Chönz and illustrated by painter Alois Carigiet. It is one of the best known picture books in Switzerland. The story has touched generations and has been world famous since the Walt Disney movie.

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary, we are pleased to invite you to a two-day programme dedicated to Schellen Ursli.

On the first day, Chasper Pult will explore in his lecture how the children’s book from the Engadine found its way into the world and what myth the figure exerts.

On the following day, the trip continues to Guarda visiting the original locations. The guided tour is followed by a short walk to Bos-cha with a picnic lunch visiting the home of Not and Tilly Schlegel, the protagonists of the Disney production “Schellenursli” from 1953.
