1. Cows with flowers
In May the farmers bring their cows up on the mountains where they stay all summer. Meanwhile the farmers can make hay down in the valley to feed their cattle throughout a long winter.
At mid till end of September the cows come back from the mountains and to show that it was a good summer they are decorated with little trees and flowers on top and with big bells.
Down in the valley the rest of the farmers family prepares a feast to celebrate with the whole family.
2. The whole village celebrates!
Nowadays tourists and locals celebrate together in the village with traditional music and specialities - and "one or two" beers.
One of the biggest of those festival takes place in the village of Söll.
In 2018 the festival week takes place from September 16 till September 23.
There are many atractions on the mountains as well as in the village the whole week long.
The Almabtrieb itself takes place on Saturday September 22nd, 2018
