Cattle Driving Festivals in Brixental Valley
The highlight to ring in autumn in Brixen, Kirchberg and Westendorf is without doubt the farmers returning home, driving their cattle back into the valleys from the alpine pastures. The driving down of cattle is an old tradition and a firework of colors, scents and sounds. The journey home of the herds of cows is a particularly important festive occasion in Brixental Valley.
