The disputes of that time have been forgotten today and both towns strive to continue the age-old custom amicably in the years to come. Every five years, Lambrecht hosts the Billy Goat Festival, the last time in 2018, on the occasion of the 615th delivery of a historic billy goat. The thousand-year history of Lambrecht flows into the billy goat story in nine pictures on the open-air stage with over 100 performers at the same time.

Safety informationIn general:
Especially in autumn, also be aware that leaves lying on the ground can hide bumps, roots, stones or holes in the path. After thunderstorms or rainstorms, trees can still fall over or branches can fall down afterwards. Especially in adverse weather conditions, muddy and slippery passages can occur on natural paths. Not all rocks or precipices are secured with ropes or railings. Surefootedness is required in places. You have to expect this type of path impairment when you undertake a hike. If you are of the opinion that certain sections of the trail are not passable for you, you should avoid them.
We endeavour to announce on this platform any closures that occur due to forestry work or hunting parties. Nevertheless, there are situations where trails are closed and we may not have been informed. If you unexpectedly encounter a trail closure or diversion, please follow the instructions for your own safety.
