PRESERVED TRADITIONS & MODERN CUSTOMS
Traditions and customs can be found all over Kuchl in SalzburgerLand. Amid the modern town, long-held customs are maintained and passed on from generation to generation. The 50 local associations are particularly involved in preserving these traditions.
A particularly special festival is celebrated in Kuchl on the Monday after the birth of the Virgin Mary: the Schusterjahrtag. Kuchl's trade guild gathered on this day at the guild lodge, the Goldene Stiege inn. This special tradition is now carried out at the “Römischer Keller” inn in order to “absolve” the newly-qualified apprentices from the sins of their apprenticeship. After proclaiming “Long live the honourable Kuchl trade guild”, the new crop of journeymen and master craftsmen receive their certificates.
