Traditionelles Schmitten Bergfest mit Alpencup Ranggeln

06/09/2020, 10:00 AM

Traditional Schmitten Mountain Festival with Alpencup Ranggeln (Alpine Wrestling)

The festival begins with a traditional mountain Mass, on a natural stage near the trassXpress top station, at 10.00 am. This is followed by „Frühschoppen“ or an early pint of beer accompanied by local music. The small Schmitten visitors can enjoy handicrafts, such as making straw figures or felting, with Schmidolin himself.

The farmer´s market has everything from Pinzgau culinary delicacies to traditional arts and crafts….which one can also try.

The highlight of the festival is at 12.00 noon: the Alpencup-Ranggel tournament begins. The best ranggler from Salzburg, Tyrol, South Tyrol and Bavaria wrestle for the Schmitten-Hogmoar title. This title exists since 1874 and is one of the most coveted in the Alps – a lot of excitement is guaranteed for everyone, not only wrestling fans.
