Heritage & Tradition

Living traditions and folk culture in Salzburg's Lungau


OF GIANTS, FLOWERS AND REFLECTIONS

In the 16th and 17th centuries, colorful processions were an expression of baroque piety: in Salzburg's Lungau a number of these traditions - such as the spectacular Samson Parades or the magical Prangstangen – have been preserved to this day. The locals do everything in their power to keep these customs alive, passing them down from generation to generation, even if they do involve a lot of time, love and work.


OF KRAMPUSES, ADVENT MARKETS AND JOYOUS BONFIRES

When nights grow longer than the days, this marks the start of a very special time of year. In Advent, Saint Nicholas makes his way from house to house, accompanied by his angels and Krampusses, while at the numerous Advent markets, cookies are baked according to old recipies and Nativity scenes are crafted. Here between the Radstädter Tauern and Carinthian Nockberge mountains, the people live their traditions as they have for generations. As the days get longer again and light begins to return, the Easter festival is celebrated with bonfires of joy.
