From August 20 to October 31, 2022, the Salzburg Farmers' Autumn will be celebrated in 72 towns. The special features of peasant life, the ingredients and dishes of peasant cuisine, as well as customs handed down over the ages, will take center stage and be brought to life in the context of farm or harvest festivals, musicians' meetings and alpine pasture drives, markets and church festivals, hikes, as well as cooking and handicraft courses.
Every year in September the Almabtrieb takes place here: The cows of the Piffalm end their alpine summer along the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and come back to the home barn of the Agricultural School Bruck. In the spirit of tradition and customs, special attention is paid in Bruck and Fusch to the fact that the animals make the long journey under their own steam and that the headdresses of the cows are lovingly handmade by hard-working helpers.
The tourism association BRUCK FUSCH | GROSSGLOCKNER together with the farming community and the Agricultural College Bruck organizes a befitting festival for guests and locals. Visitors can expect a regional farmers' market, traditional live music, lots of customs and culinary delights. For the little visitors we think about a colorful children's program every year, such as making autumn dragons or painting silo bales. Young and old are also welcome to make a few rounds with the slow train.
