Experience the “Almabtrieb” in Terenten! The ceremonial driving of cattle and sheep from the green pastures of the Wieser, Raffalt and Stockner, as well as from the Gasser mountain dairy in Marga, back to their home farms and warm barns is a long-standing tradition in Terenten.

For over 100 cows, calves and sheep this event marks the end of their stay in altitude where they enjoyed the fresh mountain air, tasty grass and cool nights. The animals are adorned with bells, wreaths, fresh flowers and ornate whetstone holders and they are driven down the valley by their herders. Plünderfuhren (procession floats), Goaslkrocha (whip crackers), Schuhplattlern (folk dancers) und and musical entertainment help turn the “Almabtrieb” into a colourful event. 

The festivities start at 10 am in Terento with entertainment and local specialties and tasty dishes. The animal train is expected to reach the centre of the village of Terento at around 2 pm.farm holidays in Terenten
