Originally the people of Bad Ischl celebrated the day on which artificial light had to be used again for work. From the money saved in the summer months, the master donated a roast dinner for his employees. Even today, on the first Monday after 29th September (“Michaeli“ Feast day of Archangel Michael) shops and businesses usually close already at noon. Although today there is no more roast meal from the boss, he still provides a few bottles of wine on the table.
Experience it yourself!
For those who want to experience this good old tradition live, we recommend they come to the “Liachtbratln” in Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt: At 2000 meters above sea level the "Lodge am Krippenstein" invites hiking enthusiasts, mountain enthusiasts and nature lovers for a leisurely afternoon.
