Apples and pears, cider traditions

The rail trip up the Pöstlingberg gets the whole event off on an genuine high note. Then, a torchlight walk from the terminus at the top of the hill to the panorama, viewing platform is on the programme followed by a visit to the Freisederwirt, where the host awaits with a cider aperitif. Afterwards fun and games begin such as cider bottle fishing, a sack race slalom and a nailing competiton ...

The traditions keep arriving with the subsequent Kistnessen consisting of rural delicacies freshly cooked on an open fire. The rustic pressing house dating from the 19th century offers plenty of space for large groups on two floors. What's special is that homemade cider and fruit juices, beer, water and wine are available on an all inclusive basis until the stroke of midnight.

Our tip! On request a professional cider sommelier will supervise a tasting with samples from varous cider regions. A cider quiz then offers a chance for the tasters to show what they have learned.
