Welcome to a photo gallery of Alphorns and other wooden horns!
It takes skills, patience and determination to build an Alphorn! If you have successfully built an Alphorn or other wooden horn and would like to showcase it here, please send photos of your horn, any links to your sites, and info on your location, to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will include it in this gallery. I will also include other wooden horns such as Büchels or Lurs if you would like to share those.
Please note that I do reserve the right to decide which words and which photos get posted on this site. Please include your first name and you location so I can update the map. This page is primarily for homemade wooden horns, but I will also post alphorns from professionals if professionals send me photos and descriptions of horns they built themselves.
