Culture and Special Events
The Lungau region has continued to nurture its folk costumes and traditions, including the Samson and Prangstangen parades. No wonder, then, that the cultural calendar is filled with theatre, concerts and other special events year-round. Harvest Festival season promises a wealth of culinary variety, while it is also the most beautiful time of year to go hiking. In winter, festive Advent markets, the Kasmandl and Epiphany Walks, Krampus processions and high-spirited New Year’s celebrations spread an authentic, seasonal atmosphere. Performances by community theatre groups are especially popular.
