Alpine cattle drives & herding 2019

Be there when several 100 animals from 4 alps arrive in Riezlern!

At the end of the alp summer cows, cattle, calves and horses are driven through the Kleinwalsertal valley and received by their owners at the Scheidplatz (separation area) on the Breitachbrücke (bridge) in Riezlern (parking lot P5) from about 8.30 a. m. onwards. There you will also find excellent food and drinks. A small farmer's and grocer's market with agricultural produce, live music - the Walser Buura (farmers) with its products provide a convivial social programme.
