When this golden valley of the Alps presents itself in vibrant autumn colors, the mountain air is especially fresh and the views seem to go on forever. When the fragrance of freshly baked farmhouse bread wafts through Rauris Valley. And the cows return home from summer spent on the high pastures. Then you know it’s time for Harvest Festival in Rauris Valley as well as Taxenbach.

On 4 September 2016 (Taxenbach) and 11 September 2016 (Rauris) our two Harvest Festivals were celebrated in our region. You can look forward two full variety-packed weeks of Harvest Festivals activities, excursions and festivals in Rauris Valley (5 to 18 September 2016) - all around the subject of "herbs, wild and medical plants".
