when in September the sheep are herded together ready to be "inspected". Throughout the summer, the sheep have been allowed to graze freely in the sun on the mountain pastures of Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt, but must now return to their stalls down in the valley.
From 11:00 a.m. the sheep will be herded together on the Hütteneckalm, and the so-called crier will call out, in local dialect, the number on the ear markings. That is how the sheep find their rightful owner!
There is musical entertainment to enjoy whilst sampling some simple traditional cuisine from the mountain hut before returning to the valley.
