Hero Dumpling Festival

Austrian Dumpling Festival

Celebrate the Tasty Tyrolean Knödel

Belly up to the worlds longest dumpling table for a feast you’ll never forget! Clocking in at 500 meters in length, this dining behemoth has achieved cult status among foodies worldwide.  Over 26,000 mouth-watering dumplings will be made during the event by 19 local masters in 26 sweet and savory varieties. Sample everything from the traditional Cheese + Bacon Dumplings to sweet Plum + Vanilla + Chocolate Dumplings and everything delicious in between. The table winds its way through the streets of St. Johann in Tyrol, creating one of a kind open-air restaurant.

Day 1: After an afternoon departure to Austria, we arrive at our typical Tyrolian country hotel with plenty of time to rest up for a fun-filled Austrian weekend.

Day 2: After a hearty breakfast at the hotel (included) we set out to explore the “Knödel-marathon.”  This begins with a parade of the landlords & restaurant owners entering the festivities, accompanied by traditional live Austrian folk music (entrance fee included). When the cooking starts the aroma of bacon, cheese, plum, vanilla, and cinnamon fill the streets and will surely tempt you to indulge in dumplings of all flavors.  Eat, drink and fill your belly in a town that celebrates food and fun in the most unique way. Dance the night and dumpling calories away to live music until it’s time to return to our hotel.

Day 3: After a hearty breakfast (included), with a happy dumpling-filled-belly, we set out to explore Salzburg, one of Austria’s most popular cities! After a photo stop at Castle Schloss Hellbrunn and Castle Schloss Leopoldskron, well known beyond borders due to the Trapp-Family and the famous “Sound of Music,” we continue to Salzburg to enjoy some free time. We invite you to spend the day at your own leisure, perhaps with a visit to the Mozart house or the Castle Hohensalzburg (not included). Our late afternoon departure ensures an arrival back to Ramstein just before midnight.
