Cattle Drive in Wildschönau Valley

Auffach, 18.09.2021

In September, Auffach in Wildschönau rounds up the herds for the great autumn cattle drive. The coronavirus pandemic has forced to cancel the annual huge Alpine Festival this year.

After the “Gru-Night”- the final evening before the journey home from the Alpine grazing pastures – the animals are milked and decked out in garlands of flowers and ribbons, with bells attached to their heavy leather collars – "aufbischt" as the Wildschönau locals put it. Soon after dawn on the great day, which is September 18, over 500 animals are herded for the great autumn cattle drive in Auffach in Wildschönau Valley. The first cows from the surrounding pastures are expected to reach the village around 12:00 noon.
