Potato festivals

The Waldviertel potato harvest festivals offer varied programmes that will delight you from a culinary perspective in particular!

The main product may be hidden deep in the ground, but fortunately it can be enjoyed above ground in Waldviertel. The Geras Potato Festival and the Litschauer Erpfl-Grätzl-Festl are the best proof of that!

“Seasoned” by rocky soil and “refreshed” by autumn dew, no two potatoes are the same and there definitely isn’t another that matches the unique Waldviertel potato! This is appreciated in Waldviertel, which is why wonderful festivals are held to celebrate the tuber: For two full days, the town square in Geras is dedicated to potato dishes and local specialities. And of course this soon makes one want to jump on the “Erdäpfel-Express” steam train and visit the Litschauer potato festival!

Tip: Take the Waldviertel railway to the Erpfl-Grätzl-Fest in Litschau!
