Deeply rooted in tradition, the grand cattle drive in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau is a wonderful festival celebrated each year in fall.
The cattle drive in Hopfgarten and Kelchsau is among the biggest of the area. On Saturday, September 25, 2021, 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. In order to comply with COVID19 pandemic spread prevention measures, the festival and the farmers market will not be staged this year.
