Decorated cattle at the cattle drive in the Salzkammergut

The end of summer in the Salzkammergut is traditionally heralded with the cattle drive. Decorated with magnificent flowers, cows, sheep or goats are driven from the alpine pastures and mountain meadows back to the valley, where they are allowed to spend the winter months in their home stables. The cattle drives are a unique attraction, which are celebrated annually with festivals in the villages around the Salzkammergut lakes. And you can be there live again this year - provided the weather cooperates. Then you can expect a lot of Viecherein, delicious down-to-earth snacks and numerous musicians who gave the event a very special soundtrack. And many visitors also come in traditional costume on this day. In lederhosen and dirndl. A very special celebration that should not be missing from your holiday memories on your smartphone. Beautiful pictures for their social media and of course their friends and relatives back home. See you at the Almavtrieb in the Salzkammergut!
