Harvest Festival in the Grossarl Valley
Autumn holiday in SalzburgerLand
The Harvest Festival in the Grossarl Valley is not to be missed. The area’s splendid autumnal atmosphere combines with a host of festivities, regional traditions and living folk culture to provide a slice of Alpine history to your holiday in SalzburgerLand. Autumn in the Valley of Alpine Meadows is a golden season of cattle drives, harvest festivals and farm-gate sales. Hiking is also writ large during the Autumn Festival in SalzburgerLand. Get to know the country, its people and seasonal fare on guided Alpine walks with your hosts and in the many chalets along the way. One of the Autumn Festival events that offers an exceptional culinary and musical experience is the Game, Traditional Costume and Folk Music Week held at the GROSSARLER HOF. Grossarl’s annual Hunters’ Ball is just one of its highlights. Celebrate autumn with a holiday in SalzburgerLand!
‘Why I so much prefer autumn to spring is that in the autumn one looks at heaven – in the spring at the earth.’
Søren Aabye Kierkegaard
The Grossarl Valley was awarded the ‘Austrian hiking seal of approval’ and has won several awards as the most successful destination in the Alpine region. With 120km of signposted cycle routes and mountain bike trails, the Valley of Alpine Meadows is a cyclist’s paradise that also offers climbers a number of via ferratas for vertical adventures. If you prefer to take things a little easier, hire an e-bike from the GROSSARLER HOF’s reception desk and make a leisurely trip along the valley’s cycle path to Hüttschlag or to the Mooslehenalm. Sociable guests have many opportunities for exploring the area on guided group walks and Nordic walking excursions.
Wildlife watching, hunting, shooting and fly fishing are wonderfully sustainable ways of experiencing the region’s natural diversity. Golfers have a choice of eight scenic courses within an hour’s drive of our 4-star superior hotel – ask us for details and take your pick. Summer in SalzburgerLand: from the romance of Alpine meadows to the cultural treasures of the Salzburg Festival with so much in between!
