Pinball Alps Tournament @ Osteria Belverde
Jul 18 – Jul 19 all-day
Pinball Alps Tournament @ Osteria Belverde | Campello | Ticino | Switzerland

This is the highest pinball tournament as we know in Europe (maybe in the world), taking place in the Osteria Belverde at 2,000m altitude at the middle station of the chair lift.

Depending on the weather the pinballs will be placed either on the inside or the outside of the Osteria Belverde.

The gaming area inside is very large and gives enough space to have enough distance between the players. On the outside the terrace is also very large and has enough seating to enjoy and wait between the games.

Everybody who enjoys pinball and nature is warmly welcomed to join us in a beautiful scenery in the middle of the alps.
