Traditional harvest festival
Autumn festival in Raurisertal
In the mountains and valleys in Salzburg Land, autumn is one of the loveliest times of the year, the weather is generally stable and the "golden valley" lives up to its name. The landscape lights up and is radiant with the autumnal hues, while the views into the distance are unsurpassable. And when the cows 'come home' from the Alpine pasture, it is harvest festival – a time for celebration. Delicious treats, produced by farmers over the summer, can be purchased and along with the traditional Alpine cattle drive, there are other exciting items on the programme. And of course there is no shortage of atmospheric music!
This is the motto of the Farmers' Autumn Weeks 2022 in Rauris for the 27th Farmers' Autumn in Salzburg.
Not only beautiful are the herbs, wild and medicinal plants in the Raurisertal, which are particularly important in the farmer’s autumn. In Rauris you will find real natural treasures along the hiking trails and a variety of precious healing powers. Wild thyme, Medesweet, Eye Sweet, Arnica, St. John’s wort, Blood Root, Valerian, Spitzwegerich, Sage, Women’s Coat and much more.
During the Farmers' Autumn weeks from 4th to 18th of September, there is a varied program, such as various guided hikes, delicatessen market, homeland evenings or game watching. Unfortunately, the traditional farmer’s autumn festival cannot take place this year. Browse through the Bauernherbst brochure and find the right program point for your stay in the Raurisertal!
