Song: Wann I mei Dianei halsn tua (When I hug my sweetheart)

Love plays the most important role in our folk songs – along with hunting and alpine pastures. The themes often got mixed up and some songs often became popular near and far.

The actor and singer Paul Schoner (1777 to 1850) lived in the “Dorf” district below. His family owned the Gasthof Dorferwirt in Oberau and he became famous as the main character in Emanuel Schikaneder's comic opera "Der Tiroler Wastl" in Vienna. He also collected songs from his homeland.
