When summer slowly turns into autumn, the sun's rays become milder and milder, and on the peaks there is the best distant view, the Bauernherbst is just around the corner!
From mid-August to early November, Bauernherbst events take place:
Starting with the traditional Böcksteiner sword dance, to the event LuXus Dinner & Film, which deals with a very topical discussion - namely that of animal husbandry and slaughter.
There is probably hardly a second place that has been so shaped by gold and silver mining as Altböckstein. More than 800 kilograms of pure gold and over
2500 kilograms of silver were extracted from the depths of the Tauern in Gastein in the best year.
At the annual sword dance in the village square of the historic mining settlement, the miners ' sense of status is presented in a unique way.
Even before dawn, the shepherds set off. With hazelnut sticks, heavy mountain boots and determined strides, they head up into the high alpine
alpine terrain. From all sides the shepherds, supported by the shepherd dogs, herd small groups of sheep from the cirques. Meanwhile, on the valley floor, the first onlookers and the farmers with their tractors arrive at the Nassfeldalm . In a festive atmosphere with music and regional delicacies, the sheep are welcomed.
Meat as a foodstuff is the basis of many discussions today. Especially animal husbandry and slaughter are viewed critically. This film shows the slaughter as a "luxury variant" and lets the valuable food meat live high.
Afterwards, top chef Rudi Pichler will delight the audience with a live cooking show and a 4-course menu to accompany the film.
From the beginning of September to the end of October, farmer Markus Hölzl from Lackenbauer presents his collection of rumbling bells and headdresses for the cattle drive down the mountain pastures in a small but fine exhibition at the KTVB Bad Hofgastein.
Delicacies from the farmers & real crafts with flowers and hay. This is what you experience in the Gastein Valley.
Do you actually know the many delicacies from the Salzburg region? At the Bauernherbst in Gastein you have the opportunity to taste the products that were produced on the alpine pastures during the summer.
The Bauernherbst is characterized by authentic and atmospheric festivities, the focus is on folk culture and customs. The festive costume is taken out of the closet, because it is simply better to dance with lederhosen and dirndl to hearty folk music - gladly late into the night.
But also during the day you can look forward to an eventful vacation day - from great hiking trails to healing thermal spas to exciting excursion destinations! Celebrate the Gastein Farmer's Autumn in Salzburger Land with us!
