Altenmarkt invites to enjoy the largest market in the region
Altenmarkt invites in the crowds on festive Gertraudi Day to enjoy the largest market in the region, which fills and overflows the High Street.
This traditional event was revived in den 90's, and now covers the whole of Market Street and some of Zauchensee road with over 200 Market stalls with a great range of products on offer. Next to traditional market folk, local businesses display their wares. Bakeries tempt visitors with Schaumrollen, Kokosbusserln and other sweet treats, farmers offer regional specialities such as bread, cured meats and cheeses. There are also shoes, clothing, antiques, household goods, toys and farming equipment on offer.
Some clubs use the opportunity to supplement their club funds by offering coffee and cake, grilled chicken or traditional food at various stands.
A very special highlight is the "horse exhibition" of the horse breeding club P10 in the Dechantshoftenne.
In addition, a raffle attracts many visitors every year, with many great prizes to win.
