Celebration of the harvest festival in Salzburger Land

Harvest Festival in Salzburg

The Aktivhotel Alpendorf in the heart of the Salzburg region is surrounded by 11 Harvest Festival locations and is therefore the ideal starting point for many festivals and events celebrating the Salzburg Harvest Festival

Celebrations at the Salzburg Harvest Festival

When the farmers of Salzburg bring in the harvest and make the fresh products into smoked meats, marinated herb cheese or fruity “Obstler” spirits, a special time has begun in the Salzburger Land region.

During the Harvest Festival our guests and locals alike look forward to the Salzburg specialities - and what else can one do but celebrate?  With over 2000 events celebrating this tradition and farming handicrafts, the whole of the Salzburger Land region is involved in the Harvest Festival from the end of August to the end of October.

The festivities during the Salzburg Harvest Festival are primarily to give thanks.  With traditional farm festivals, the farmers thank the active workers who helped bring in the harvest or the hay.  The numerous Harvest Festivals, church days and processions are a regular aspect of church custom.

Specialities of the particular regions are served: strong smoked meats, various homemade cheeses, dumplings, freshly baked 'Krapfen' doughnuts and much more.  A Harvest Festival beer tastes best along with it! It will make your mouth water!
