Celebrate tadition: Ausseer Kirtag Festival
Beer tent, brass music and traditional costumes
The Austrians know how to celebrate! The Altausseer Kirtag is the season’s highlight and takes place annually on the first weekend in September. In the year 2014 the huge party will be celebrated by the Altaussee locals from 6th to 8th September in the volunteer fire brigade’s beer tent.
We celebrate the “Kirchweih”, which is the consecration of the church with an annual fair – a festival which has been popular since the Middle Ages. Experience the 54th Altaussee Kirtag with beer tent, funfair and the Kirtag stables!
Enjoy the first days of autumn, when locals and guests celebrate together during the traditional festival. The Altausseer musician will entertain you and the Lupitsch fire brigade band will play original Austrian folk music for you.
The region’s best delicacies can be found at the festival area in the centre of Aussee as well as plenty of palatable beer and traditional, high-quality Schnapps. Try the world’s most delicious grilled chicken, bratwurst, sauerkraut and smoked char from the regional waters
Free bliss for everyone
The festival is a big success year after year and this is probably because the organisers have kept the old traditions: free entrance, original folk music, the high quality of the offered products and favourable prices have proved a recipe for good atmosphere.
The Ausseer Kirtag: close to your Seevilla Hotel
