Söll

“Hoagascht” is a word commonly heard in the dialects the Tirolean Unterland (literally lowlands). It is almost impossible to translate – either into standard German or any other language – but one thing is for sure: wherever there is a “Hoagascht” going on you can expect plenty of food, drink, fun, laughter and singing.

The village of Söll at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains is a perfect example of a place where these old traditions are still treasured by locals who are proud to share them with tourists from around the world.

These can be anything from meeting up once a week in the local inn to chat, laugh and gossip to the famous “Almabtrieb” processions in September, when cows driven up onto the high mountain pastures in spring are brought back down into the valley with great pomp and ceremony. If both the animals and farmers have made it through the summer without accident or injury then the cows’ heads are elaborately decorated with twigs and flowers.

Families with children should definitely pay a visit to the Hexenwasser adventure area in Hochsöll, which offers plenty to see and do for inquisitive minds of all ages.
