33rd Spring Festival with Horses

13.06. - 14.06.2020

During the 32nd Spring Festival with Horses, from 8th to 9th June, 2019, Ramsau am Dachstein crowned its new Dachstein Highnesses Bianca Rettenwender from Ramsau and Monique Simon from Haus im Ennstal.  These young women took up the mantel to represent Ramsau and Schladming Dachstein at official events near and far.

More than 15,000 people visited the colourful 32nd Spring Festival with Horses and enjoyed 50 events in front of the splendid Dachstein backdrop. A celebration of tradition, the event was filled with music and more than 120 gorgeously adorned horses of different breeds. 

Traditional Schnalzer, Schuplattl groups, traditional folk-dance groups, and marching bands enchanted the visitors. The little guests loved the many animals they could pet. 

On Saturday, the musical hike took place, as well as a visit to the flower arrangements. In the evening, the Ramsau am Dachstein traditional marching band gave a concert. The highpoint of the evening was the presentation of the new Dachstein Highnesses.

The event highlight, however, was Sunday’s 500-strong flower-and-horse parade. Flower-bedecked carriages travelled through the village, pulled by Haflingers, Friesians, Noriker, ponies, and even some donkeys.
