Almabtrieb festival


The tourism association BRUCK FUSCH | GROSSGLOCKNER together with the Bauernschaft and the Landwirtschaftlichen Fachschule Bruck designed a fitting celebration for guests and locals. Visitors enjoyed a regional farmers' market, traditional live music, lots of customs and culinary delights. For the little visitors there was a colorful children's program, such as making clay pot men and face painting for children. Young and old can also enjoy a few rounds with the Bummelzug.

Many thanks to all participants who have made this year's Almabtrieb an unforgettable experience.

This year the Almabtrieb will take place on 9th September 2023.

The farmers, the agricultural college and the tourism association are looking forward to your visit.



Farmer's Autumn in the SalzburgerLand

From 19th August to 31st October 2023, 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.
