Musical ‘roas’ at Brunnalm

Musical and culinary delights for the Assumption of Mary

Want to enjoy the beauty of nature? Go hiking! Every year on 15 August, in honour of the Assumption of Mary, the Musical ‘Roas’ takes place in the Brunnalm-Hohe Veitsch area of St. Barbara im Mürztal / Veitsch. This event is great fun for the whole family – as you walk the hiking trails, you’ll be dazzled by the culinary and musical delights along the way! In summer, the area is considered a true paradise for casual hikers and expert alpine climbers alike. In winter, Brunnalm-Hohe Veitsch has made a name for itself as a family-friendly ski area perfect for ski tours.

At the musical ‘Roas’ on 15 August, hiking enthusiasts have the opportunity to stop for breaks at all the restaurants and catered cabins from Rotsohlalm to Brunnalm and Kleinveitschalm. A great variety of musicians, from small brass bands to Styrian harmonica players and various vocal formations, provide invigorating and authentically Styrian music for a genuinely rustic atmosphere. Regional treats like the famous ‘Veitscher Rahmkoch’, freshly baked ‘Bauernkrapfen’ (doughnuts), a hearty ‘Brettljause’ (cold-cut and cheese platter) with home-made bread or the delicious roast pork taste especially good when paired with a wonderful panorama view and relaxed atmosphere. The four-seater panoramic chairlift is also in operation on the day of your visit, allowing you to cover the first few metres of altitude without any physical exertion.

Tip: On Rotsohlalm, the already traditional Holy Mass takes place on Assumption Day. The holiday of the Assumption of Mary celebrates Mary’s ascension into heaven and is one of the oldest Christian high feasts!

A diverse area for hiking

The Brunnalm-Hohe Veitsch area has a great wealth of hiking trails and routes. Brunnalm-Hohen Veitsch also offers the best conditions for more leisurely hikers and families. Hike the panorama path in Brunnalm! The 6.5-km-long, family-friendly panoramic trail leads through the scenic area below the southern cliffs of the Hohe Veitsch. The gentle alpine landscape is characterised by flower-dotted limestone. Wonderful nature and rustic culinary experiences included!

Yearning to smell the fresh alpine air? No problem! Some paths lead to the plateau of the mountain massif and further to the panoramic peak of Hohe Veitsch at 1,981 metres above sea level. As a reward, a wonderful panorama view from Hochschwab to Schneealpe awaits you.

Tip: The Graf-Meran House at 1,836 metres is ideal for a convenient rest.
