Just for fun!
The barrel stave race on Mount Krippenstein in Obertraun on Lake Hallsatt is the perfect combination of winter sports, entertainment and traditions and is one of the highlights of the winter season in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut. Courageous protagonists launch themselves down a steep slope, on the curved planks of old barrels, just for the amusement of the spectators from home and abroad. The race times are irrelevant – it is the route to the finish line with its spectacular falls and crashes that people want to see.
A merry conclusion
At the award ceremony, each of the daredevil "racers" will be cheered as winners and both locals and visitors can spend a relaxing evening with the participants! And who knows, maybe there will be one or two brilliant insider tips for participation in the next barrel stave race in Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt. Check it out!
