Autumn in the Berchtesgadener Land region has something special to offer, besides the beautifully colourful countryside – the Almabtrieb, which is the ceremonial driving down of cattle from the mountain pastures into the valley.

When the animals are brought into the valley from the mountain pastures, this is marked in Berchtesgaden by a traditional celebration. A particularly special sight is watching the cattle be taken by boat across Lake Königssee. Dates and times are dependent on the weather.
