The traditional homecoming of livestock had always great importance in South Tyrol and many villages celebrate it also today. Here you can find the most important events in Vinschgau!

The magnificent spectacle takes place every year in late summer or at the beginning of autumn. The livestock comes back from the meadows in the mountains, where it spent the whole summer. Now it’s time to bring the cows and sheep down into the valley before the winter begins. 

In many villages the homecoming of livestock is one of the most important events of the year. It is a seasonal turning point for every farmer and the whole village community comes together and celebrates that everything had gone well in the summer months. Frequently the animals are decorated festively and the herdsmen will be received with music and typical specialities in the village.
