The people of Wallgau welcome in the spring with a hearty festival. The clubs and associations from the village meet on the first Sunday of May and enjoy the 'Trachtenjahrtag' a celebration of traditional costume.
And the nature in the spring?
Immediately after the snow melts many of the meadows come to life with crocus blossom. The spring crocus blooms only a few days a year and is spread out over different locations and is marvellous spectacle to admire for a few weeks.
A relic from the Ice Age and naturalistic rarity of our area, from May onwards the "Buckelwiesen" offer a unique foray of colours. First blue and pink from gentians and primulas, then yellow and white of the mountain avens, horseshoes and anthyllis, through to pink-purple orchids and columbine.
June is the month of the orchids: lady's slipper, helleborines and various Alpine orchids - all strictly protected and are only to be "picked" with a camera.
Tips for spring:
- Gentian blossom in the Buckelwiesen
- Hiking to Arnica meadows (Hirzeneck, Kranzbach, Elmau)
- Guided nature walks
- Globe flower meadows (Kranzberg)
