The pumpkin craze started more than 20 years ago with a single event, Pumpkin Day on the last Sunday of October. In the meantime, October pumpkin month has grown into a large-scale folk gathering with many events and activities and has resulted in a special culinary offering by our many high-quality hotels, restaurants and pubs.

Using home-made giant catapults, the participants try to throw pumpkins as far as possible. Spectacle guaranteed.
