Holidays in Carinthia’s first Slow Food Travel Region
For you, do holidays also involve getting to know the land and its people as well as delicious local cuisine? The regional producers in this first Slow Food Travel Region offer you the unique opportunity to peek over their shoulders as they go about their work and even lend them a hand yourself. For example, you will see how organic sheep’s milk is produced, make all-natural ice cream, bake bread from a natural sourdough. You will see how rye and wheat are ground into flour at the water-powered mills in Maria Luggau, while also learning what makes white Gailtal corn so special. Or discover the art of “pasta crimping”. A visit to Herwig Ertl’s "Edelgreisslerei" in the center of Kötschach also promises to be an unforgettable experience.
Kötschach Mauthen is also famous far and wide for its Cheese Festival, held annually on the last weekend in September. Local and international exhibitors offered the widest imaginable variety of full-flavored cheeses to the public. Needless to say, this also includes Gailtaler Almkäse – with a protected designation of origin, this delicious cheese is produced at 13 mountain huts in Gailtal.
