The Hoagascht is a well-known custom all throughout Salzburg County: People meet up at a nice location to chat, tell and listen to stories, eat and drink, play music and sing. There is plenty to tell in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region. It's about remembering and telling of times gone by, an exchange between generations and cultures, passing on experiences and recipes, reviving old traditions, farmers and weather lore and discussing the latest events in the village.
Fine delicacies from regional and seasonal cooking and a shake of the leg or two with some music wrap up the Hoagascht. Joy of living and enjoying fine food can be found with the farmers' autumn landlords, who dish up everything good the holiday region has to offer in traditional dishes. The connection between healthy food and its origins is also clear to see during the Salzburg farmer's autumn. Be it while visiting a farmer's market or making use of the farm-gate outlets – the choice of delicacies during this period is particularly large and tempting. Many farming businesses not only produce excellent produce, but also process these into ready-to-eat delicacies using individual recipes.
