Tradition and culture

In Tyrol, traditions are of great value and have been passed on from generation to generation

Time goes by, and the landscape changes in the course of time, but traditions and customs are still preserved. Still today processions take place, feast days are held, and dished are still prepared according to traditional receipts. In this section you are informed about customs and traditions in Tyrol and their history (in the picture the Alpbachtal valley).
