The Epiphany Riders on Horseback

Tradition at the New Year

Every year on the 5th of January, the Holy Three Kings make their way from Lungötz to Annaberg, perform music in front of the houses and wish good luck and blessings for the New Year. The special thing about it is that the kings are riding on horses and wearing old, traditional clothes. Further companions of the riders are "footmen" Fußknechte, smoke barrel carriers and also a donkey. The Dreikönigsreiter start at 9 o'clock at the chapel in Lungötz (except if the 5th of January is a Sunday - then after the blessing about 10.30 am they start directly from the church Lungötz), in the evening a mass is celebrated in Annaberg.

Mountain Worship and devotions

Being One with God and Nature

You do not have to be very religious, and yet it is a very special experience when the mountain worship is celebrated on the Stuhlalm in mid-August. Instead of sitting in pews, you sit on the alpine meadow, bees hum, cowbells ring. The pastor's words are accompanied by traditional brass music. Up here everything feels a bit freer - time to reflect and self-reflection - just let yourself in on this special feeling.

The mountain worship at the Gerzkopf (beginning of August), the Spießalm mass (mid-August) and the Stuhlalm mountain worship (end of August) are recurring every year. In addition, devotions are held in various beautiful places during the summer and autumn.

Although they look similar to the Krampus, the creatures are mythologically much older and more complex. Unlike the Krampus, they do not strike, but stroke over people, house and property with their horse hair rods and thus will bring happiness year. Do not miss this special spectacle on every 30th of December.
