Enjoy the late autumn in Puch near Salzburg

We already had wonderful autumn days with us in SalzburgerLand. A really nice "Indian summer" with warm temperatures, yellow-gold colored forests and wonderful game dishes. Now the air is cooling down more and more, the first snow is looking down from the mountains, the deciduous trees are soon losing their last leaves and the days are getting shorter and shorter. It is late autumn in Salzburg and the Advent season is getting closer and closer.

Autumn has a lot to offer in culinary terms. Fresh apples from the trees, the last herbs from the garden, pumpkins, delicious game dishes and much more! November has traditionally started very sweetly with the "Allerheiligenstuck" from the "Geden" (part-uncle and part-aunt). We have the best far and wide in the Pföss organic bakery: organic bakery: it"s fluffy, very tasty and with lots of icing .... hhhmmm!

From today on there will be delicious goose in Puch again! Traditionally around November 11th, the goose is prepared fresh from the oven in the Pucher Gastro and served with blue or red cabbage, tasty sauces and various dumplings. The best thing to do is to reserve a table at the Hotel Gasthof Kirchenwirt, in the Essbar or in the Vinisterium:

The first thing you notice when you walk into the courtyard from Leitnerstrasse is something new! For a few weeks now, the Moosbauer in Puch has had a 24-hour machine where you can buy homemade delicacies and regional products around the clock.

Currently in the Moosbauer machine: Currently in the Moosbauer machine: Dairy products made from the farm"s own organic milk, such as yogurts, cream cheese, curd cheese spreads and clarified butter. In addition, homemade dumplings, sliced ​​cheese from the Bio-Hofkäserei Fürstenhof in Kuchl, meat and sausage products from the butcher"s shop Winklhof in Oberalm and bread, such as the Bosna sticks from the organic bakery Pföss.

Where are the goose?

Next to the machine you can already see and hear them, the numerous cackling geese. And right in the middle, young farmer Stefan Meißl who is currently feeding his poultry with organic corn feed meal behind the farm. He explains to me that "the geese eat 80% grass on the pasture and every field, regardless of the height of the grass, is mowed down" and that these organic grazing geese "grow up on the Moosbauer farm from the first to the last day". To be more precise, from May to November you can see the geese moving in a group across the fields around the Moosbauer.

Even more enjoyment from the farm

At the Moosbauer organic farm you also get a lot more! If you order in advance by telephone, you can still get eggs, milk, semi-hard cheese and fresh wood-fired bread every Friday, as well as tasty Kletzenbrot on order in Advent. In addition, veal and beef 1-2 times a year. If you have any questions or want to order something, just call the Moosbauer: Tel. +43 6245 75467 and don"t forget to try the delicious goose at the Kirchenwirt or Vinisterium!

Lantern parades for the Martinsfest!

Just like the goose, the popular lantern parades on the special day of Saint Martin of Tours around November 11th are part of it. The children spend days tinkering with the perfect lantern, which they then proudly present in kindergarten, school or on a leisurely stroll with the family. There"s just something magical about it when the lanterns shine against the stars in the sky and you"re still out and about in the dark in the evening. Or how does it say in one of the most popular lantern songs from the 19th century:

"Ich geh mit meiner Laterne und meine Laterne mit mir. (I go with my lantern and my lantern with me.)
Dort oben leuchten die Sterne und unten da leuchten wir". ( Up there the stars shine and down there we shine.)

Forest walk around the pond in St. Jakob am Thurn

An evening stroll around the pond in St. Jakob am Thurn at dusk is particularly beautiful. The pond and the illuminated pilgrimage church of St. Jakobus d. Ä. offers a mystical atmosphere. To warm up after a walk in the forest, it is best to reserve a place at Der Schützenwirt, who will be happy to spoil you with culinary dishes of the day.

The autumn season is magical and invites you to take unique pictures of the colorful forests in SalzburgerLand. The city of Salzburg is now shining in a wonderful autumn glow. You can get particularly beautiful views of the autumnal old town and the Hohensalzburg Fortress on a walk over the Mönchsberg. From the Müllnerhügel you can march over the Richterhöhe to over the Festungsberg to Nonntal and enjoy great views again and again. At the Richterhöhe you can even see as far as Puch. Just look for the distinctive Barmsteine ​​on the left after the Untersberg, shortly before that you will find Puch.
