Cattle Drive in Gerlos

Gerlos, 28.09.2019

Crowds will gather, local people together with holidaymakers, to line the streets of Gerlos on September 28, 2019 to see fat healthy cattle, decked out in garlands of flowers, returning from a summer’s grazing on lush upland pastures.

On September 28, 2019 between 09:00am and 2:00pm, the herds will parade through the streets and to their home stables to cheers and whoops. The traditional homecoming is celebrated with a huge festival in Gerlos. Brass bands are out in force as well and the streets become full of people in traditional Tirolean lederhosen and dirndl costumes. Stalls are set up in the streets, selling all sorts of authentic Tirolean crafts as well as local specialties and refreshments.
