Gerlos Sheep Drive
The Gerlos "SCHAFLSCHOADE" - Sheep drive with sensational village festival
In the early morning of September 14th, 2013, more than 250 sheep come down to the valley from the Alpine pastures. They find their way into the Schönachtal valley and are herded together.
Down in the valley - in the village center of Gerlos - countless guests and the local farmers await the animals. That's where the "Schaflschoade" starts - the sheep are divided into different corrals of the various farmers. Ian Ewans, a professional shearer from Wales (GB), shears one sheep after the other.
Numerous chefs of the region cook local dishes.
