Graz can boast a small culinary sensation, which is the crowning glory of Graz the „Capital of Delight“: seven different types and varieties of truffles have been discovered in the city forests of Graz!
The truffle is considered to be a culinary treasure and a diamond in the kitchen. According to tradition, these mushrooms, which grow underground and are extremely difficult to detect, were already very popular in ancient Egypt. Even the burgundy truffle, coveted by gourmets, has been harvested in Graz. To mark this, a truffle festival will take place again in 2022. The truffle festival‘s programme includes guided hikes, an international truffle market with specialities and high-quality truffle creations. And the partner companies in the Capital of Delight also offer a whole host of sophisticated culinary highlights – with the „Graz Truffle“ of course!
