Because the Triesen Berger dialect differs significantly from that of the rest of Liechtenstein; it is one of the oldest known Alemannic language, the Walser dialect. Many of the archaic expressions and Sounds are preserved until today. “Bärgärisch reda” is Werner Schädler, host from the mountain guest-house Sücka, a particular concern. It makes it a lot of Fun to offer its guests a few words “Bärgärisch” to teach.
