Every year cattle herders bring the animals to Bavarian mountain meadows in the spring and remain their through the summer before bringing them back to farms in the villages below for the winter. The herders spend the summer living in a mountain hut called an Alm, often without electricity in a tradition going back centuries.

In the last few months there have also been several cases of fatal attacks by cattle against hikers, also an unusual occurrence. (Photo by Philipp Guelland/Getty Images)
