The Salzburg alpine sum­mer — Green mead­ows and peace­ful graz­ing cows, a fun­ny dairy­maid — only a cliche? No way. If a heart­ful “Juchiz­er” greets you from far away, than you are on the alpine pas­ture. Humans and cat­tles spend since cen­turies the sum­mer­months on high lay­ing moun­tain mead­ows. The aro­mat­ic alpine herbs and flow­ers, the moun­tain air and the sun let the cat­tle thrive and pros­per. Go onto expe­di­tion through the rank alpine flo­ra in the alps: On your way you find rare herbs and flow­ers, berries and mush­rooms and with a bit luck you will meet mar­mots, deers, harts or even chamois.

You walk via flavour­some alpine mead­ows in untouched nature, refresh at crys­tal clear water and if your “calves” make itself felt because of wel­fare fatigue, then it is high time to make a rest.

Time to be spoiled in a rus­tic alpine cot­tage of dairyman/dairymaid with a sol­id snack and the typ­i­cal Salzburg hospitality.

Dished up will be pop­u­lar del­i­ca­cies of the region: fresh but­ter, self­made alpine cheese, still warm bread baked in a wood-fired oven, sol­id farm­ers bacon, a tasty “Bret­tl­jause”, “Sennhupfer” and blue­ber­ry por­tions with refresh­ing but­ter­milk or the farm­ers curd — just pre­pared — are a real pleasure.
A jig­ger gen­tian- or rowan berry schnaps needs not to be missed.
And with new ener­gy you start your hike to the next alpine pasture.
