Cattle Drive in Tannheim

Tannheim, 21.09.2022

The cattle drive in Tannheim is one of the most magnificent in the entire region. Up to 700 cows return from the six Tannheim Alpine grazing areas to their farms down in the valley in September.

Countless locals and visitors will turn up on September 21, 2022, to admire the magnificently decorated animals. Accompanied by lively music, the cattle drive in Tannheim is one of the most beautiful in the entire region. Animals from different Tannheim Alpine pastures return home on this particular day. They are only decorated in colourful ribbons, flowers and bells for their return journey to the valley when the entire herd (and its keepers) have enjoyed a safe and healthy summer on the Alpine grazing pastures. The descent takes three days and the herds have to tackle an elevation loss of 1,000 meters.

Tannheimer Tal celebrates the safe homecoming of the cows on September 10, 2022 in Jungholz, on September 16, 2022 in Grän-Haldensee and on September 18, 2022 in Nesselwängle.
