Open Air of Voices in Kustein for bringing home the cattle

There is a lot on offer in holiday region Kufsteinerland in autumn. After the Flower Parade weekend from August 25th to 28th comes the next highlight of the destination near the Kaiser Mountains: Rita and Andreas invite you to join them on the weekend that the cows are brought back home, from September 15th to 18th, at a big Open Air of Voices performance at the historical Kufstein Fortress.

Famous for being the voices of the Zillertal Valley, for the past decade Rita and Andreas have inspired pop song fans from far and wide. The two have made a name for themselves with melodies that stick in your head, and lyrics that get under your skin. At the Open Air of Voices they are supported by Geschwister Hoffmann and Die Paldauer - pop song fans are well looked after.

A weekend that focuses on music

The weekend starts on Thursday September 15th with an evening welcoming you to the event weekend. It gets you in the mood for the coming days with a great atmosphere and lots of music. On Friday Rita & Andreas show you the best of the region. You will learn more about the idyllic high valley near Kufstein on a walk around Thiersee and subsequent mass. The day concludes with a fun small party.

Bringing home the cattle - time to go home

On Saturday September 17th it's time for the big highlight of the weekend. In the morning there is the traditional bringing home of the cattle in Kufstein. This is an old tradition that is still kept up in the region. At the end of the summer the farmers celebrate the safe return of their cattle to the valley with a festival. The cows are elaborately decorated and brought back to their home barn. On the long road back from the mountain pastures into the valley they pass the fortress city at approximately 3 pm, and are greeted by a big festival. With crafts, live music by the city band, and culinary delicacies such as "Kiachl" served with either sauerkraut or cranberries.

Open Air of Voices

Then in the evening there is the large Open Air of Voices at the historical Kufstein Fortress, where Geschwister Hoffmann and Die Paldauer warm up the atmosphere. They are followed by the main programme, when the two full-blooded musicians Rita & Andreas not only captivate the stage in the fortress arena but also the hearts of the concert audience. The unforgettable weekend is rounded off with a fun pre-lunch drink on Sunday. Local music groups provide entertainment as you taste delicious Tyrolean treats to your heart's content.
