20 Years of Harvest Festival


Posted on 28. August 2015
Salzburger Lungau
When autumn draws near in Salzburg's Lungau

During Harvest Festival season especially, Lungau in the sunny south of SalzburgerLand puts on some of the most magnificent colors that nature has to offer.

Did you know that in Lungau there are some 60 mountain tarns, a variety of theme paths, as well as numerous mountain huts and hikers' refuges, all just waiting to be discovered?

Mysterious and inpenetrable, the shimmering lakes look up towards the sky, inviting hikers to cool their tired feet in the crystal-clear water.

In Lungau, Harvest Festival - with its traditional festivities, dishes and love for regional folk customs - is both loved and celebrated. Aside from countless Harvest Festival events such as Almabtrieb parades and fairs, the processions with the giant "Samson" figure are a very special highlight. A heroic biblical figure and emblem of the Lungau, it has its origins in the 16th century, a symbol of power and strength.

Culinary highlights include Lungau "Eachtling" potatoes and "Schöpsernes" (roast mutton). The "Eachtling" has also earned the Lungau the prestigious recognition that goes with being named one of the Austrian "Genussregionen", and is famous far beyond the borders of Lungau.

We would be delighted to celebrate our "20-year anniversary of Harvest Festival" side-by-side with you at various unique events and festivities.
