The “4 daagse”, or “four dayer”, has existed in the Netherlands for at least a century. Participants complete hikes of between 30 and 50 kilometres per day, for four days and at the end are awarded a medal for their achievement. The Netherland’s biggest folk festival is organised around this event; every year some two million visitors descend on Nijmegen during the traditional week’s hiking. There is music, food and masses of people of all ages all the way along the route, as the 7 km-long pack of hikers wends its way through the streets. In the evenings the town is transformed into one giant party venue.
Bad Kleinkirchheim has succeeded in obtaining approval for the alpine version of this traditional event. The second “Alpen 4 daagse”, or “Alpine 4 dayer”, will be held in the Nockberg hills in September 2015, in cooperation with Dutch hiking organisation KNBLO and travel agent Effeweg. The event is complemented by attractive new hiking routes in the Nockberg hills and around Lake Millstatt.
