Folk music in the Ramsauer alpine pastures

For the 10th time different wind groups play on the huts on the Dachstein. Luminous larches, clear autumn air and beautiful views – what would go better with these pictures than an atmospheric way of blowing the sages? This is also what the innkeepers and hut owners of the Ramsau alpine area thought, and so every year on the 4th Sunday in September, guests are invited to the great event in the alpine pasture.
