Filderkraut Cabbage Festival
A vegetable is the star of the traditional Filderkraut Festival in Leinfelden-Echterdingen: the famous pointed cabbage from the Fildern district. It has been grown here for centuries, because it only flourishes on the fertile loess-loam of the Filder plateau. This flavoursome subvariety of white cabbage is listed as an important and endangered regional species in the Slow Food Foundation's "Ark of Taste".
At the Filderkraut Festival on 18th and 19th October, this delicious vegetable can be enjoyed in the form of sauerkraut, stuffed cabbage leaves or Echterdingen cabbage tart, to name but a few.
