Alpine cattle drives & herding 2022
Alpabtrieb and Viehscheid 2022
Traditionally, the Alpabtrieb takes place in Kleinwalsertal on September 19th. Around 500 animals, including cattle from the neighboring Allgäu and the Bregenzerwald, are driven back into the valley by the shepherds and handed over to their owners at Scheidplatz in Riezlern. In the course of the morning, the different Alps are expected in Riezlern.
The participating Alps and itinerary will be published throughout the summer.
Scheidplatz is located in Riezlern between Breitachbrücke and Kanzelwandbahn (=P5 Kanzelwand). Parking is limited, so we recommend using the Walserbus.
Please note that there will be traffic delays on Walserstrasse and Schwarzwassertalstrasse.
