Big Cattle Driving Festival in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau, 29.09.2018

If you want to experience real Tyrolean tradition up close, then on no account should youmiss this festival in Kelchsau. With its old original center this small village offers theperfect backdrop for the farmer’s market on the day of the cattle drive. Traditionalhandicrafts and Tyrolean delicacies make this day an event well worth seeing.
Begin atabout 09:00 a.m.

Most of the cows, however, don’t stay in Kelchsau but leave the valley to go on toHopfgarten and Itter. Consequently hundreds of cattle tramp through the Hopfgartnermarket enjoying a warm reception as they make their way home. At 11 o’clock the bandstrikes up and the first treats of the day are served, from typical Tyrolean specialities toprized schnapps. Stock up on local natural products at the farmer’s market andexperience a “Plattenwerfer” (disc throwing) tournament at the Salvena car park.
Craftsmen and women, proud to preserve their traditional working methods, are on handand keen to share their expertise. The festival is organized by the clubs and innkeepers of Hopfgarten, who are looking forward to welcoming all visitors.
