Venison week highlights

The Hochkönig venison week

Every year since 1995, the "Bauernherbst" has been held in the Salzburger Land. It is a celebration of regional customs and Austrian tradition. In autumn, the rural culture is demonstrated in traditional festivals, parades, folk music, regional delicacies and genuine handicraft demonstrations.

In the Hochkönig region, around the picturesque villages of Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach, the programme includes bread baking, cas'n, schnapps distilling, farmers' markets, the Hochkönig venisonweeks and cosy Hoagascht'n (entertainment). At the Hoagaschtn on the mountain pastures and huts you can enjoy your autumn holiday with freshly harvested, local delicacies while the autumn sun warms your heart.


For your dinner with a mountain backdrop, you'll head up high - with a view of the Hochkönig. At the Steinbockalm you will be enchanted by the multiple award-winning chef André Stahl and his team with a 7-course menu.
