Forecast

High pressure is continuing to build across the region, but before the sun can do its work it has to chase away the last clouds. Brighter weather will break through before midday.

Tendency

Slowly but surely we have to mentally prepare for more unstable weather. Already by Tuesday, it will begin to change with thunderstorms.

Axamer Almabtrieb

Traditional “Almabtrieb” celebration in Axams

Every year in autumn, local farmers bring their cows back down from the mountain pastures where they have spent the summer. This is known as the “Almabtrieb” – a traditional parade and celebration that is an absolute autumn highlight. Huge herds of sheep and cattle make their way along country roads to the towns and villages where they will spend the winter. Farmers mark the occasion by dressing the animals in colourful floral wreaths, headdresses and neck decorations with embroidered leather straps. Many of the animals also wear bells around their necks so they can be heard from afar.

The sheep are the first animals to arrive back in the village of Axams – approximately 1,000 are brought down into the valley on 6 September every year. On the following Saturday, they are joined by the larger animals, such as cows, oxen, horses and calves. Then the party starts – a celebration full of music, customs and delicious traditional delicacies.
