drive from the mountain pastures in late summer.
When the days get shorter and temperatures drop in the mountains,
it's high time for the cattle to return to its cozy stables.
Elaborately decorated cows, sheep and goats go on their
"way home" with the shepherds. With bells, straps
and colorful adornments, the herds are decorated beautifully.
Thousands of visitors and area natives come to the Almabtrieb
in Meransen, one of the largest
in South Tyrol.
