Experience the "Bauernherbst"
Living traditions and earthy customs
The "Bauernherbst" Salzburg dominates the region from late August to early November. Austrian traditions and customs of the province of Salzburg take centre stage during harvest season and are introduced to new generations and curious guests. A number of events and festivals, such as the impressive "Almabtrieb", need to be experienced at least once.
73 regions throughout the entire state
The Salzburg "Bauernherbst" takes place in 73 communities spread across the entire region that can explored perfectly during hikes across mountain meadows or bike tours. Various events give you an insight into farm life, such as crafts displays and farmers’ markets with delicious fare directly from the farm. Rousing festivals, dancing parties and musical performances are also on the programme, of course.
Experience the "Almabtrieb"
When the days get shorter after a long summer and fog settles over the mountain pastures, then the return of the grazing cattle to the valley is near. The "Almabtrieb" is a rousing feast and part of the "Bauernherbst" Salzburg. Richly decorated animals are brought back to the farm, where their arrival is celebrated enthusiastically. Particularly delicious milk and tangy cheese are a welcome by-product of the pasture summer.
