The ancient tradition of Almabtrieb, the welcoming home of the cows as they return from the high alpine pastures is today a celebrated festival and a chance for the villagers and visitors to 'party'. Herdsmen and villagers dress in traditional costume and the cattle are paraded through the decorated streets adorned with splendid floral head dresses, ribbons and bells. Enjoy traditional Tyrolean culture as Autumn colours reflect the impressive Alpine scenery of this magical region in Austria. With accommodation at the excellent family run Alpendomizil Neuhaus Hotel in the beautiful resort of Mayrhofen you will enjoy a memorable holiday in a wonderful region of Austria.
