The almabtrieb is an event when the cow herds, that were fed on alpine pastures during the summer return to the valleys. In Bad Hindelang this event is usually taking place on Sep. 11th. It is celebrated with a big market and a beer tent, where the local Oompah band is playing. This scene shows decorated cows, the so called "Kranzrinder". They are only decorated, when all the cows came back from the summer in the Alps.
Bad Hindelang in the Allgäu region is a popular health resort. The small village with it's five districts has still preserved its charm. Many of the houses are built in the traditional Allgäu style.
