    Wildschönau Almabtrieb Festival - Austria
    Date: 17th September 2016
    During September the alpine villages of Austria celebrate the annual ‘Almabrieb’. This wonderful traditional festival literally means ‘ driving down the mountain’ and celebrates the end of the summer, when the sound of cowbells echo through the valley as hundreds of cows are led down the mountain, decorated in traditional costumes and led to their stables for the winter – it’s quite a spectacular sight! Alongside the "Cow Train" procession are village fetes and celebrations throughout the mountains.
