Song: „Ja im Summer, da wat i durchs Gras“ (In summer I wade through the long grass)

The Changing of the Seasons determines the life rhythm of the mountain dwellers. The change in nature, the varied tasks in every season and the delight in this variety can be heard in the song, "Ja im Summer, da wat i durchs Gras”, one of the oldest recorded songs in Tirol. In 1807 it was written in the records of the Rottenburg Castle above Rotholz by the district judge Johann Strolz as a “Schnodahaggn - Unterinnthaler folk song” and thus saved from oblivion.

How many such songs and verses and other folklore have been irretrievably lost? The Gugg (cuckoo) features in many of our folk songs and can be heard in them too - as a herald of the coming spring.
