The big street party in Bad Goisern

Around 14:00 hrs. the carnival fools, in the centre of the World Heritage town, show how colourful and happy the fifth season of the Salzkammergut can be. Many enthusiastic spectators from all over the world line the streets and turn the market town, in the heart of Austria, into a party mile. On this carnival day, different groups highlight current affairs and drive with imaginative vehicles, or march in great costumes with music and lots of momentum through Bad Goisern. A colourful spectacle, which you should not miss on your holiday in the Salzkammergut.

Colourful Carnival Celebrations

Carnival days are excessively and raucously celebrated in the Salzkammergut. Tradition and folk culture are also important during carnival time. From the well-known Ebnensee parade to the traditional Ausseer Flinserln figures and the “drumming wives” figures: Everything is topsy-turvy in the Salzkammergut during carnival time. Not without reason carnival time is referred to as the fifth season here.
