Feistritz an der Gail

In the municipality of Feistritz an der Gail there is a very special tradition: Kufenstechen and the Lindentanz, which take place every year at Whitsun.

 

Men riding on unsaddled horses beat a wooden barrel with iron hammers, with the winner being the one who smashes the last stave. The village girls wearing splendid Gail Valley traditional costumes are then led out under the lime tree to dance. The day before the fair, every boy is given a small bouquet by the girl he has chosen to dance with, made from a carnation, rosemary and gold sequins, which he wears on his left lapel.

Cyclists can potter along the Gail Valley Cycle Path, and you can also practise your skills as a pilot on the model aircraft field.
