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 3rd of September 2017 (opening festival of the region Nationalpark Hohe Tauern in Taxenbach) and on 10th of September 2017 (Rauris) our two Harvest Festivals were celebrated in our region. There were two full variety-packed weeks of Harvest Festivals activities, excursions and festivals in Rauris Valley (3rd to 17th of September 2017) - all around the subject of "herbs, wild and medical plants".
