Tradition & customs during harvest season

The province of Salzburg is known for premium natural products from local agriculture. During the Bauernherbst, from 10th to 18th September 2021, it’s all about the production and consumption of agricultural products - the Bauernherbst slogan 2021 fits quite well: "We live for that - cottage gardens".

Music and dance are deeply rooted in rural traditions. Whether at weddings, festivals or just for an evening get-together - unimaginable without songs and dances. The customs here often differ greatly from village to village. So you will experience an authentic Bauernherbst in every village. Enjoy also the tranquility and the view in the mountains in autumn.

In the "fifth season" in Salzburg, you can taste lots of local delicacies.
