The annual cattle procession in the alpine region of Austria sees the ceremonial bringing home of cattle following the summer grazing season in the Alps. When the cattle are escorted down into the valleys on various weekends through September and October, they are decorated with colourful headgear. The cattle drive in Mayrhofen is one of the most spectacular, and features a large parade with live music, entertainment, and plenty of food. Mayrhofen is a five-hour drive from Vienna, or 2.5 hours by car from Munich.
