Heimatabend at the Kaprun Castle

Folk dance & "Schuhplattler" dance at Kaprun Castle Zell am See-Kaprun

Are you interested in authentic, popular folklore and Austrian traditions? Then, the Heimatabend at the Kaprun Castle is just perfect for you. The castle, which sits enthroned on a rock above the town of Kaprun, is a worthy setting. A setting for a festival full of traditions, customs, folk dance, Schuhplattler dance and much more; simply everything for an authentic Pinzgau Folkloric Evening!

Save the dates ...

From 3th of July to 4th of September 2017, always Tuesday at 8:00 pm

Folk dance, rustic music & Schuhplattler dance

Do you know the Schuhplattler dance? No? Then, the Folkloric Evenings at Kaprun Castle are a must. Immerse yourself in the authentic world of Pinzgau customs every Tuesday at 8:00 pm in summer. The "D'Weissbachler" Schuhplattler dance club, founded in 1920, shows you the most typical of all Austrian, regional dances in an entertaining and fascinating way. Watch, join in and try it yourself. Of course, real Schuhplattler dancing requires much practicing and dedication but no one is born a "Schuhplattler pro"!
