Lipizzaner Horses Coming Down from the Alpine Pastures

The day of coming home is celebrated by many visitors! More than 40 stallions will be wellcomed at about 1:30 pm in the city of Köflach. Experience the unique time when the horses come down from the alpine pastures and accompany them down into the valley from the meadows and celebrate.
