Customs and traditions



Cattle drive to and from the summer pastures
 
Each June the century-old tradition takes place: The farmers drive their herds up to the summer pastures from the Gastein valley. The cattle thrive on the full-flavoured alpine herbs and flowers and mountain air. The dairy products, which are made are especially delicious; discover some of the 55  alpine meadows in Gastein.

A special event in mid-September is the traditional herding down of the sheep in Sportgastein.
 
A meadow hike is suddenly transformed into a festival, if you are lucky to chance upon the herding down of cattle. The animals are festively decorated as they make their way down from the summer mountain pastures back to the barn, where they spend the winter.  At the farmers' markets delicacies  from Gastein can be purchased. A tasty roast lamb is traditionally prepared at this time and should not be missed.
 
Harvest Festival
 
When the sun's rays start to lose their intensity and the woodland foliage is bursting with vibrant colours, then it's time to welcome the autumn!
At the end of August the harvest festival begins with an exuberant opening. The local population from the valley adorn their surroundings  with festive decorations and dress themselves in traditional costumes.
Experience the colourful side of Gastein with its genuine traditions, maintained throughout centuries. Gather lots of new impressions at the Harvest Festival which lasts until the end of October!
