“Liachtbratl” Monday – Milestone Birthday Feast

Formerly, the “Liachtbratl“ Monday was the workday on which artificial light had to be used for the first time in autumn. Having thus saved some money during the summer, the shops’ masters invited their employees to a ‘Bratl’ (pot roast).

In Bad Ischl, every person celebrating a milestone birthday during the year is especially honoured.
