wachau GOURMETfestival: Enjoy the Wachau!

The 16th edition of the hugely successful wachau GOURMETfestival will be another culinary milestone: 03 to 17 April 2025.

Over the last years, wachau GOURMETfestival has established itself as one of the most important international culinary festivals. It is mentioned in one breath with festivals in St. Moritz or Rheingau and other benchmarks and has long outrun numerous traditional and well-established festivals.

On the one hand, this is due to the special structure of the wachau GOURMETfestival with top restaurants firmly rooted in the region as venues and a broad scope, from culinary offers for novice gourmets to high-end events in the "Champions League". On the other hand, its success is based on the dedication of top international chefs and winemakers, who helped to shape the wachau GOURMETfestival and make it known beyond Austrian borders.

The outstanding wine tasting event WEIN & GENUSS Krems with more than 70 renowned winegrowers from Lower Austria.

The backbone of the festival is formed by the network of the gourmet region Wachau with its large number of high-class restaurants, its reputation as one of the world's very best white wine regions, and a flourishing tourist infrastructure.

The festival is organised by the individual venues. The wachau GOURMETfestival board is the umbrella organisation and is embedded in the communication agency LWmedia, the same company that also publishes the famous wine magazine VinariaDonau Niederösterreich Tourismus GmbH cooperates closely as a partner and is responsible for tourist offers and coordinating hotel bookings.

A very special part and the heart of the festival is the outstanding wine tasting event “WEIN & GENUSS Krems” with more than 70 renowned winegrowers from Lower Austria.
