Thursday, April 24th, 2014 Maypole

The tradition of erecting the maypole is celebrated a bit different in each region. In general it is about a huge tree or trunk which is decorated and erected on the 1st of May in the centre of each village (also here in Grödig). Before erecting the maypole it is usually carried through the village accompanied by a local marching band. In the past men had to erect the tree themselves but nowadays they often use machines as well. 1st of May is celebrated the whole day and of course there is plenty of  traditional Austrian food and a lot of beer! Also the traditional “Dirdnl” Dress and the “Lederhose” is a must-have on this day! :)

Thursday, December 1st, 2011 Krampus in Grödig

Typical for the time before Christmas is the Krampus. It is a dressed person with a scraggy costume, a scary mask and noisy bells around the hips. Originally the Krampus is the companion of St. Nicholas who arrives on the 6th of December to award nice children.

As processions with the Krampus are becoming more and more popular they already start a few days earlier. But if you see a person dressed up as Krampus after the 6th of December its probably a Percht follower. They look very much alike but the Percht followers usually arrive on December 6th, December 22nd and January 6th to cast out winter.

Learn more about this popular tradition by visiting the procession of the Grödiger Krampusse on December 6th, just a few walking minutes from the Sallerhof!
