The area is famous for pumpkin (kürbis) oil, a strong flavored nutty oil that goes well in salad. There is also a sheep cheese which is similar to a mild creamy feta.


The area is famous for a wine called Schilcher. It comes as a white wine or rose. It has a slightly sour taste, somewhat similar to sauvignon blanc. Visit a Buschenshank (wine tavern) in the nearby area. These taverns offer locally produced food, mostly cold accompanied by local wines and a lively atmosphere.
