Alpine Cattle Drive in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve

The great traditional celebration in autumn

When the cows return from the Alpine pastures to the valley, it’s time to celebrate in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve. The Alpine Cattle Drive, that is. Early in the morning the cows and calves are adorned with colourful floral arrangements – this means that summer on the alpine pastures passed off without misfortune. Often the bipeds and their four-legged friends march back home for hours, and while the lush meadows in the valley await the cows as a reward, the herdsmen look forward to the merry hullabaloo, that welcomes them after weeks of solitude in the mountains.

Please note: All celebrations around the Almabtrieb will not take place in autumn 2020. Many thanks for your understanding!

Alpine Cattle Drive in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau

Due to the conditions surrounding the coronavirus, the big Almabtrieb in Hopfgarten cannot take place in the usual framework. The farmers' market with handicrafts, music and culinary delicacies will be cancelled in autumn 2020. Of course, the tradition of driving cattle from the mountain pastures is still maintained and you can always admire decorated cows on their return home in September. The original Almabtrieb day is 26.09.2020. However, the return of the cows this year will also depend on the weather. Nevertheless we hope to welcome many colourful decorated cows on Saturday, 26.09.2020 in the villages Kelchsau and Hopfgarten when they return home. Thank you very much for your understanding!
