The traditional Corpus Christi shooting of the Corpus Christi shooters in Hallstatt takes place every year at 6.00 a.m. on the bathing island and is the start of the Corpus Christi procession on Lake Hallstatt. 

Unique in Hallstatt 

Only in Hallstatt the Corpus Christi procession takes place on the lake. The reason for this was, that there was not enough space in the small town for a magnificent ceremony. Around 400 years ago, the Jesuits decided to simply hold the Corpus Christi procession on Lake Hallstatt

Corpus Christi shooters

Also the Corpus Christi shooters are unique. They accompany the procession with their pillory socks and announce the most important parts of the procession. With three shots in front of the gospel and to bless each station, they loudly announce the importance of the minutes to come. The Corpus Christi shooters start shooting at 6.00 a.m. on the bathing island of Hallstatt and then come over the lake every 15 minutes closer to the Catholic Parish church, where they accompany the entry with their shots.
