See traditional craftspeople at work!

Achentaler Kirchtag at the Sixenhof

Have you ever wondered how “Original Tirolean Doggeln” are made? And what are “Doggln” anyway? Felt slippers. Every year, the Sixenhof, a historical original single farmhouse, plays host to the Achentaler Kirchtag. Visitors to this traditional village festival can watch craftspeople at work and see how old Tirolean crafts are kept alive. This year, the event will take place on 15 October 2023.

Of course, no cultural event in Tirol would be complete without music and culinary delights! At the Achentaler Kirchtag, visitors can enjoy a range of traditional regional delicacies made in the old open-fire kitchen, such as "Gruassi Nudln" - delicious Tirolean deep fried pastries. Expect a day full of fun and local food in a traditional setting, accompanied by live music from the duo “Larchschiefer” from 11.00 to 16.00. There will also be entertainment for children, such as wood sawing and a play area.

The Kirchtag will be held in any weather. Admission is free (the Sixenhof and the craftspeople are happy to receive voluntary donations).
