Traditions & Culture

Traditions and culture run deep in the veins of the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee and Salzburger Sportworld locals. They are celebrated with the Traditions and Customs Time, Village Festivities, Marketplace Concert as well as culinary and Church festivals. 

Alpenland Hotel guests can walk to many of these events as the town centre and marketplace are just acordial few minutes walk away so that you can experience the cordial-cozy country life first hand. 

A highlight of Summer in the Hills is the art and culture aspect alongside being out in nature. In August, Altenmarkt hosts the Cultural Summer programme with a small but discerning selection of events to entertain guests and locals alike on a higher level. Every year, the street theatre, farmer's satirical cabaret, art exhibition, films, readings and music are included in the programme.

Throughout the Harvest Festival Time, you can enjoy folk music and traditions evenings, farm festivals, Mass on the Mountain or harvest thanksgiving celebrations. In Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, they pick a new motto every year but they keep the old favourites such as the homecoming parade, with the beautifully decorated cattle, living handicrafts in the marketplace, the farmers' satirical cabaret, and the musical afternoon. The local inns and restaurants celebrate autumn with culinary delights with local produce and game.
