The Neustifter Kirtag from August 21st to August 24th

Lots of stands offer an amazing flair and the Heurigen contribute to that atmosphere with their great wine and delicious dishes.
A long-lasting tradition
The origin of the Neustifter Kirtag lies in the 18th century during the reign of empress Maria Theresia. The wine-growers from Neustift had to fight with their crops and were asking the empress for a tax-exemption. Equipped with a thanksgiving-crown the wine growers went to see the empress Maria Theresia. The empress left the crown to the wine-growers and agreed to the proposal under one condition: The wine-growers of Neustift have to host a wine gathering, the Neustifter Kirtag, on an annual basis. Since then, the Neustifter Kirtag became an important tradition.
