Celebratrions in schladming-dachstein region
Autumn is the time of traditional customs and festivals. Hike to the originsof Steirerkas or look at the marvellously decorated cows at the "almabtrieb".
Thanksgiving and "almabtrieb"
Traditionally we are thankful at the end of the summer for good harvest and the good summer. In the Ennstal and around Schladming this festival is particularly celebrated and magnificent harvest crowns of cereals, fruits and vegetables show for what everyone is grateful. In the mountain region they were used to relying on what they produced themselves.
Then when the summits are white with the first snow comes the time for the "almabtrieb". There are pretty decorated cows that have spent the summer on the pasture, driven back to the valley and received with music and celebrations. The animals spend the winter in the barn.
"Steirerkäse" and other styrian culinarys
Steirerkas belongs in our Schladming-Dachstein region to a proper snack. In the alpine meadows it is still produced using traditional methods. In autumn there is a traditional "Steirerkas-Roas", which means comfortable hiking to the most beautiful and pristine pastures.The steirerkas is still made from the dairymaid itself and tastes fresh simply the best. There are also homemade juices, spirits and much more, what our region has to offer.
Every Friday takes the tratitional farmes market at schladming place. Here you can get fresh food directly from the producer: bacon, mushrooms, cheese, butter, herbs, bread, apples,….
