The tasty Waldviertel

Concerning the regional cuisine and culinary delights, the denomination of origin "Waldviertler" has long stood for excellent quality.

Among those ingredients typical of Waldviertel cuisine are potatoes, carp fish, poppy and local cattle breeds, giving rise to countless traditional festivals and events: Potato & Poppy Seed Festivals or dry fishing the local ponds in the autumn. Concerning drinks, look out for signs of beer culture with locally brewed Zwettler, Schrems and Weitra beers, try excellent wines from the river Kamp valley or enjoy local whisky made in the villages of Roggenreith and Kottes.
