Harvest Harvest at the Barbarahof

In autumn, the customs in Saalbach Hinterglemm are at least as colorful as the leaves on the trees. No wonder – after all, from mid-August to the end of October the 5th season arrives: the farmers’ autumn. Every year it enchants locals and visitors to Salzburg Land alike with its traditional charm, delicious delicacies and countless events.

Whether at music and dance events, at the Almabtrieb, at markets, harvest festivals or at craft demonstrations: Rarely do vacationers have such diverse opportunities to immerse themselves in customs and folk culture.

Would you have known? Long before the Salzburg Bauernherbst became the cult event of the Salzburg region, there was already a farmers’ market with a festive procession in Saalbach Hinterglemm.

Customs events in late summer

Hinterglemm farmer’s market

The Hinterglemm farmers’ market is by far one of the most traditional events in Saalbach Hinterglemm. This three-day festival brings together everything that has rank and tradition – from Schnalzer groups to music bands and horse-drawn carriages to shooting clubs.

Unfortunately, due to Corona, the farmers’ market will not take place this year. But we are looking forward all the more to an exuberant celebration next year!
