The return of the cattle

A colourful event in autumn which every year attracts people from all over.

When the cattle returns from mountain pastures, people in South Tyrol celebrate. During this event, called “Almabtrieb”, cows, sheep, goats and horses return into their stables. Especially the cows are decorated with alpine flowers, mirrors and bells.
Moreover the farmers provide you with crullers and different other local specialities. As you might notice, the return of the cattle is a real event, which heralds the start of the cold season. Of course there is also traditional music, folk dance and people dancind the Schuhplattler.

Visit the “Schofschoad” (return of the sheep) in Val Senales, or come to Renon when the Haflinger horses come back from alpine pastures…
