Alpine Pasture Hike at the Zell am See district

Alpine summers and harvest festival in the Salzburg region

Customs and tradition are deeply rooted in the land of the mountains, especially around Salzburg. Countless events take place throughout the year, including markets and folk festivals that delight locals and holidaymakers alike. Not least because of the goodies, which are only available on certain holidays. In no less than 500 alpine huts guests are spoiled in the traditional way – with home baked bread, speck and homely fires. Numerous alpine pastures only available by food are a real insiders tip. So much better when you can reach the hidden corners with Eurohike. 

At the Harvest Festival, people are dressed as colourfully as the leaves on the trees. Traditional dress is compulsory during the Harvest Festival and music events! So it won’t be a surprise if you see someone wearing Lederhosen while out hiking.
