The origins of this archaic custom are largely in the dark – but one thing is certain,
that it shows the Lungau from an original side and testifies to the close connection of the Lungau
with its landscape. Because the “Stiflerhupfn” translates landscape into
customs, or is a landscape that has become customs.
But it is also certain that the tradition of the “Stiflerhupfn” has almost disappeared together with the traditional hay harvest. has almost disappeared. Almost, because fortunately the last testimonies of this rural cultural asset could be preserved, collected and worked up, in order to resurrect the “Stiflerhupfn” now again! again!
