Alpine life - a piece of culture!
However, the Alpine pastures and mountain huts around Lake Hallstatt are far more than just destinations for hikers and have an important role within Austrian culture. For now, just as in the past, farm animals such as sheep or cattle are driven up onto the pastures in the summer where many products are manufactured onsite by the milkmaids and dairymen who also spend the summer months on the pasture. Towards the end of the summer the animals are then colourfully decorated and driven back down into the valley. A unique cultural asset still alive around Lake Hallstatt and Gosau.
