The cattle drive in Gerlos has a long tradition and is one of the highlights of autumn every year. After the alpine summer, the colorfully decorated cows are led from the alpine pastures through the village to the farms and greeted with a big cattle drive festival back in the valley.
Due to the still valid regulations regarding Covid-19, the big cattle drive in Gerlos cannot take place in the usual way this year. Nevertheless, you can experience the Zillertal tradition very close. There will be a "Cattle drive as it used to be", in which the cows will be bundled up and proudly return home from the alpine pasture on September 24, 2022 and can be seen along „Gerlos Straße“. We also have several event tips for you during the cattle drive week from September 23rd to 25th.
