"Fetzige" events in the Traunsee-Almtal region
The carnival stronghold of the region is Ebensee, but also in the other Traunsee communities there are funny and "fetzige" events.
On Carnival Saturday, February 22nd, 2020, once foolish children in Ebensee before adults. On Carnival Sunday, 23rd February 2020, then enjoy the full-blown fools at the great carnival parade in Ebensee. Further, on Carnival Sunday, 23rd February 2020, the famous Viechtauer carnival procession takes place in Neukirchen near Altmünster. However, this is only a prelude to the furious "Fetzenzug" on Carnival Monday, 24th February 2020, the day that ends on Tuesday morning. Ridged and with intricately carved wooden masks in front of the face, take the foolish "shreds" Ebensee in possession. In recognition of the tradition of customs, in 2011 the Ebenseer Wetzenzug was awarded the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage status. The Carnival Tuesday, 25th February 2020, then belongs again to the children and offers the big fools the opportunity to gather strength for the ash Wednesday: for the "Faschingssuchen", the carnival burning and the herring feast.
