Highlights of the Year
You can choose from a great variety of entertaining events if you are on a holiday at scenic Alpenhotel Krone in Pfronten.
Festivals, Sports & Culture
Be it a fun-filled sports event, a traditional village fair or the patron saint's day - there is always a good reason to celebrate among locals and friends. Theater stage plays, classic concerts, exhibitions and brass band serenades at the Kurpark garden are held throughout the year. Great fun and entertainment for all ages!
Cattle parade held on every 2nd Saturday in September: about 400 cows return down to the valley from the Alpine pastures where they spent the whole summer. This traditional cattle drive followed by a huge parade with more than 1,000 participants attracts thousands of visitors from near and far.
Festival of Transhumance
The cattle drive moves towards the giant area where the farmers welcome their animals after a long and revitalizing summer spent in the high Alpine regions. The cows wear elaborate headdresses for the occasion, and the clanging of cow bells accompanies brass bands. Additionally, a wonderful farmers' market and live entertainment in the beer tent are attractions you shouldn't miss.
Vintage Car Festival
The yearly Vintage Car Festival of Pfronten, held every 2nd weekend in July, has already become a tradition among fans of classic cars and passionate drivers.
So much for "Old Cars"!
On Friday, the "car talks" are officially kicked off when the drivers, co-pilots and vintage car lovers meet for the first exchange of ideas over a fine non-alcoholic drink.
Saturday is dedicated to the great "Gamsbart Rally": more than 100 classic cars fight for their chance at glory. The prize-giving ceremony takes place in the evening, and is followed by a fun-filled Vintage Car Party.
On Sunday, the slogan is "admire and touch the cars". Some 150 vintage vehicles of all kinds are waiting for the cheering crowd.
