Marketday in Westendorf in Tirol
Marvel at the traditional hand crafts
... and purchase unique souvenirs!
Every Thursday in Summer, Westendorf's village centre is transformed into a real boulevard. Exhibitors display their skills in almost-forgotten handcrafts from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Seldom is it said: look and be amazed!
How are felt slippers made? What's the scythe sharpening all about? And what does the turner make on the wood-turning lathe? The skilled stall attendants can answer these and many more questions live and on-site. It's fascinating to watch the basket weaver forming the basket shape with a few skilled movements of the hand or the local felt slipper makers: they also love to sell their products as souvenirs.
Enjoy local culinary delights
Almost forgotten. Traditional. Delicious.
The market street is enriched with stalls, some of which cater for the culinary well-being of guests. In the spirit of tradition, often almost-forgotten dishes and specialities are presented: Blattl with sauerkraut, Kiachl like in Granny's day, typical Brixen valley Brodakrapfen, or Kartoffeln-Schoaten.
Of course the classic top-sellers such as roast chicken, barbecued sausages or Käsekrainer shouldn't be missed. And if that isn't enough, simply stroll through the numerous stalls: fresh, seasonal fruit straight from the farm, the Westendorf farmers' freshly baked bread or regional cheese and Speck specialities await you, as well as highly-concentrated schnapps or even healthy herbal products.
A comfortable ambience is our priority!
Meeting point for guests and locals
