There's something going on!
If you want to experience typical Austrian customs during your holiday in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut, then you should mark the date of the “Almfest” in Koppenwinkel in your diary: Here you will experience genuine, living customs.
Music and Dance
It starts with the traditional yodelling and brass music. An unforgettable moment. Then there's a leisurely afternoon in Koppenwinkel with folk music and dances, as well as a “Schuhplattler” display from the Obertraun homeland group.
Of course, the physical well-being is also taken care of, at the Obertrauner Almfest, with delicacies from the region – “Holzknechtnockn”, “Schneeballn” and “Rauggerln”!
Easy to reach
The Koppenwinkelalm can be easily reached on foot, from the "Koppenbrüllerhöhle" car park or train station, in about 15 to 20 minutes.
Adventure tip for the festival
Not far from the Koppenwinkelalm - just a few minutes' walk away - there is a “Kneipp” path at the “Hagenbach” (Hagen stream) and an idyllic path to the source of the “Bühlerbach”, a karst spring fed by ice cold water from the Dachstein massif!
For the first time this year, there is an alternative date of 8th of September should the weather on Sunday, the 1st September not want to play along.
