Send this to a friend Printer friendly version

TRAVEL. The mountain landscape of the Austrian Tirol is a draw at any time of year and travelling in September and October is no exception. From festivals celebrating rural traditions like the Almabtrieb to sporting events such as the Kaisermarathon there is an action-packed calendar of events for all. Here are 10 good reasons to visit the Austrian Tirol and discover what’s going on in the region at this time of year.

1. Old Tirolean Handicraft Festival in Seefeld (8th – 9th September 2012)
Take a step back in time in Seefeld where you can marvel at old handicrafts, as the old masters come together to celebrate their workmanship. With more than 100 stands and exhibitions, from basket weavers to barrel makers they will be demonstrating their skills during the festival, with plenty of traditional music, food and drink.

2. Wildschönau Almabtrieb Festival (15th and 22nd September 2012)
Celebrations begin as some 500 cattle return to the valley, after a long summer pasture in Auffach in the Wildschönau valley. The cows are decorated with wreaths of flowers and bells and paraded down by the herdsmen, dairy maids and cheese-makers. This long-standing tradition continues with entertainment, lots of dancing and age-old entertainment. The party goes on long after the cows have come home!
