Kaiserwinkl Egascht Fest'l

9th June 2019 in Walchsee

Bringing in the first swathe, or the first hay was once called the 'Egascht Mahd'. Based on this date and old traditions, at Lake Wachsee the 'Egascht Fest'l' is always celebrated on Whit Sunday. An extensive programme, along with the authenticity of the presentation, has meant the festival has been very popular - not only in the Kaiserwinkl but beyond Tyrol's borders, into Bavaria.


The Haflinger horse has its origins with us in the Tyrolean mountains. In cooperation with the Tyrolean Haflinger breed association and Johanna Mühlbacher, we present all the advantages this popular breed has to offer. One-two and even four horses draw the carriages around the "Fischerangerl". But even under the saddle makes the pretty Haflinger a good figure. Last but not least, we can also take a look at some young horses and maybe even some foals!
