Highlights in late summer
At the end of the pasture season, the cows are festively decorated with flowers, ribbons, banner and saint's tablets as well as the large departure bells and driven home from the Zillertal Alps - It is a very special spectacle for our guests.
The Almabtrieb is a particularly colourful event and leads from the Zillertal Alps over our Zillergrund Nature Park, right past our Alpine Lodge.
The Zillergrund founders celebrate this holiday with you: Enjoy regional Zillertal specialties such as donuts, Melchermuas, Zerggl, farmhouse bread, bacon, grilled, stone pine schnapps and sweets and look forward to musical and traditional performances by bands.
Highlights in spring
When spring replaces the cold season, the fascinating time of colourful flowers and blossoms begins in the Zillertal.
TRADITIONAL SPRING START WITH THE “GRASAUSLÄUTEN”.
At the present time it is difficult to imagine that in the past special spring customs should help drive off the cold winter. One of these customs is the “Grasausläuten”, People parade through meadows and grasses with bells to accelerate the growth of the fields and meadows.
Many parades and processions take place especially in late spring and early summer. With the Blessed Sacrament, the parish moves through blossoming nature and is accompanied by people, bands and marksmen. These rituals are usually a way to hope against lightning and thunderstorms and have a long tradition. The uniforms and standards of the individual clubs and participating bands are especially worth seeing. You really shouldn’t miss it.
