The cuisine representatives create true culinary fireworks on your palate. Whether alpine lodge or gourmet restaurant in the valley, whether typically Tyrolean, savoury or high cuisine.

The culinary Delights in the Zillertal and particularly in the First Holiday Region Fügen-Kaltenbach offer a great variety to its guests. Many huts in the Zillertal additionally provide great views, both in summer and winter. The typical Tyrolean hospitality and the savoury delicacies are a recommendation, which is equally popular among families and gourmets!

Cattle drives in Autumn

During the annual cattle drive, the colourfully adorned animals return home to their barns under the delighted gaze of hundreds of excited spectators. The cattle return from the mountain pastures. First though, every animal is given a festive “Buschn” headdress made from pine cones and roses, grain and barley stems, edelweiss and pearls.

The procession then sets off on foot through the entire valley. The cattle drive is headed up by the lead cows, which know their way home by themselves – and naturally have the finest headdresses. The women also wear their finest Dirndls and the men their dashing folk costumes.

The event is rounded off by both culinary delights and plenty of entertainment.
