The carnival in Rothenthurm is small but nice and rustic: the Tyroleans dance their way through the village, children's drummers wake Rothenthurm rudely at 4.00 am on Dirty Thursday, country music invites you to dance in the village pubs and on Carnival Saturday the Hudis even go skiing.

Schmutziger Donnerstag

Dirty Thursday is all about the children's carnival. In the morning, the people of Rothenthurm are rudely roused from bed at 4.00 am by the children's drummers with monotonous "tätärärä-tärärärä, tätärärärä-tärärärä, tätärärärä-tärärätätä, tärärärätä-tärärärärä". The carnival day can begin. 

In the afternoon, the children's parade starts with the most beautiful hudis and floats with the little drummers and the Türmli-Guugern as well as the Little Tyroleans, who then take it in turns to tirol in the pubs to the sound of country music.


On Güdel Monday morning at 4.00 a.m., the adult drummers beat their drums with a monotonous "tätärärä-tärärärä, tätärärärä-tärärärä, tätärärärä-tärärätätä, tärärärätä-tärärärärä".

In the afternoon, the Original Rothenthurmer Tiroler do their rounds in the pubs to Ländler music. It's always a Schottisch, a polka and a Ländler.
