Experience the Harz tradition
In the past, keeping the Rote Höhenvieh was an important source of life in the Harz Mountains, alongside forestry and mining. So the first cattle drive after a long, troublesome winter was of particular importance and was celebrated with a ceremony.
This tradition has been preserved in Tanne to this day. The Tanner Kuhball is always celebrated on the Sunday before Ascension Day. The event starts with a large parade in which all trades and associations introduce themselves and in which the "red-brown" cows are also integrated. At the Hirtendenkmal (erected in 1958 as thanks and recognition for the shepherds of Tanne) the parade stops for a photo stop. Then it goes on to the festival ground. A varied folklore program and entertainment for young and old guests await you here.
