Stuhlalm-Mountain Worship

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 music from the traditional music band. Up here everything feels a bit freer - time to reflect and self-reflection - just let yourself in on this special feeling.

This tradition is practised at the Rottenhofhütte, where Krapfen (doghnuts) – spicy or sweet – are offered during the Krapfenwoche at the end of August/beginning of September.

Familiy-friendly Perchtenlauf

Mystical beings bring happiness in the new year

"An Fried´, an Reim und an G´sund", peace, happiness and health, that is the saying when the Perchten appear in Lungötz on the penultimate day of the year. 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.
