Organic Hay Region Salzburg Lake District

240 organic farmers, members of the umbrella organisation BIO AUSTRIA, in 27 towns belong to the Organic Hay Region Trumer Lake District. The Organic Hay Region is one of the last and largest contiguous areas in Europe where hay farming, one of the oldest agricultural cultures, is still operating. 25 million litres of organic hay milk are produced here without any silage, and processed in six regional dairies. Only 3% of European milk is produced in this way. In the Organic Hay Region Trumer Lake District, however, not only is organic milk important – a wide variety of regional specialties are also produced such as organic apple juice and goat’s cheese,

Harvest Festival in the Salzburg Lake District

The region around these four lakes celebrates with traditional farmer’s markets, tasty specialities and real folk music. Year after year both visitors and locals alike enjoy the colourful harvest festivals.

Experience the Lake District in a different way and enjoy a lot of traditions together with the locals during our festivals. The Seeham village festival, the Wallersee pilgrimage, the traditional motor-free day around Lake Obertrum and much more are our way of celebrating the Harvest Festival and make your holidays a real “vacation from everyday life”.

Experience Herbs in the Lake District

Enjoy all your senses around Mattsee, Wallersee, Obertrumersee and Grabensee. The Salzburg Lake District can draw on 14 herbal specialists and TEM practitioners (Traditional European Medicine) throughout the year. The opportunities are correspondingly varied. In the annual programme, which is begins in April, all participating herbalists, restaurateurs and landlords present their personal preferences: Grandma’s recipes, applications for your own well-being or just the desire to experiment with herbs.

Cycle from Herb Garden to Herb Garden

The “Trumer Lakes Herb Circuit” and the “Wallersee Herb Circuit” connects numerous lake district communities with each other and take you past wonderfully smelling herb gardens. With an interesting quiz, the kids are also motivated to look for the next herb garden along. But not only herb enthusiasts find something great on these tours. Also families, pleasure cyclists and ambitious pedallers really appreciate the wonderful bike trails, the entertaining kids quiz or the many opportunities to sit inside comfortably in the Salzburger Lake District.

Herbal Life – Christmas with Smoke & Tradition

It has long been a tradition to clean the air in house and home during the cold seasons with fragrant smudge sticks. At the winter solstice on 21st December, the rebirth of light is celebrated. To honour the returning daylight we light a hand-bound smudge stick which was bound during the summer solstice. Numerous Herb Experts share their wisdom about smudging in Workshops and Events.
