Transalp Waterline Tour #8 At the heart of the Swiss Alps, Flims hosted international slackliners for the 8th consecutive year. More than 100 slackliners went on the tour to visit beautiful mountain lakes. To add to the stunning scenery at Caumasee (Lake Cauma), this spontaneous and colorful art installation was born.
