Glöckler runs in the Traunsee-Almtal region

The last rough night around the Traunsee and the Almtal.

On the evening of the 5th of January, the last Rauhnacht, one of the most impressive winter customs of the Salzkammergut, the Glöcklerlaufen, is held on the Traunsee and in the Almtal. At nightfall, the Glöckler find themselves at their meeting points on the Traunsee and in the Almtal in groups, called "pass", together to start their run. The features of a Glöckler include white clothes, bells and, of course, the up to 15 kg heavy gossamer cap. Each gibber cap is a little work of art in itself. It consists of a mostly geometric framework of thin wooden sticks on which black construction paper is applied. Motifs and ornaments were previously drawn on this paper, which are then cut out and punched in painstaking detail work. Finally, the motifs are glued to the inside with colored paper and the candles, which illuminate the motifs from the inside in the evening, are mounted. Each of the runners spends several hundred hours working for his cap.

Each pass is headed by a precursor. At certain houses and squares figure-eight figures are run and the local families invite for a small meal.

EVENT ORGANIZATION: At 6:00 pm in the center of Ebensee, at 6:45 pm in Gmunden, at 8:00 pm in Altmünster and at 10:00 pm in Traunkirchen, all participants will meet to sing together.

At a sign, all passes with a dull ringing of bells enter the totally dark space, form a huge circle, the forerunners of passports step into the middle and begin traditional nativity songs. The light of the rattle-cap and the dull sound of the bells shall drive away the evil spirits and attract the good spirits, the victory of light over the darkness of winter.
