Customs & rare handicraft

In the Alpbachtal, customs are lived and rare crafts are cultivated. We would like to share with you the most interesting customs and the beautiful crafts to be found in the region.

REDISCOVERING CUSTOMS

Centuries pass, the landscape changes. What remains are the traditions and customs that are passed on from generation to generation. Discover the regions' customs in a novel way and learn, for example, why every year in June fires are lit on the mountains. Read about singing messengers, the wood drift and why the "Hex" moves from farm to farm here.
Find out more about a singing envoy, timber drifting to the why a witch wanders from house to house.
