This year for the sixth time, in Niederdorf there will be held the Potato Festival. For more than a week, the entire village is dedicated to the tasty tuber and offers a varied program of fun and pleasure.
At the end of September, you shouldn’t be surprised if many restaurants in Niederdorf offer an above-average number of potato menus. During the Potato Week many of them are dedicated to traditional food. So they serve various potato dishes in many variations, combined only with local products.
As is known, the best is saved for last and so it is in Niederdorf: At the end of the week, on 23rd and 24th September in the morning there is a large farmer's market with home-made and home-grown products such as cabbage, cheese, honey and of course, potatoes.
Shopping is a parents’ task, but you’ll find a huge and pleasurable program for children, too: During the Potato Olympics the kids can run, jump and most of all, have fun. Just like on the real Olympic Games, the participation is everything.
This motto applies to the whole festival. If you think you already know the potato, we recommend you to join the Potato Festival in Niederdorf in Hochpustertal and experience the spud in many new ways.
