Cattle Drive in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau

Hopfgarten im Brixental, 24.09.2022

Deeply rooted in tradition, the grand cattle drive in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau is a wonderful festival celebrated each year in fall with local music, Tirolean delicacies and finest, homemade schnapps.

The cattle drive in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau is among the biggest of the area. The grand cattle drive and associated festival takes place on Saturday, September 24, 2022. Traditional crafts and Tirolean delicacies turn this day into a truly remarkable event. Most of the cattle have to be herded even further down the valley to their home farms in Hopfgarten and Itter. Hundreds of cows are therefore herded through Hopfgarten Market, where they are welcomed to cheers and whoops. Locally sourced produce and mouth-watering Tirolean specialties are available from the farmer’s market as of 10:00am. Craftsmen that strive to maintain their traditional working practices stand by ready to share a few tricks of the trade with visitors.
