Kartoffelfest auf dem Hof Tewes in Willighausen bei Müden (Örtze)

Interesting facts about Germany's most popular potato

Did you know that Germany's most popular potato comes from the Lüneburg Heath? Here, in Germany's largest potato-growing region, the great tuber has a long tradition. The tasty regional specialty is not only particularly popular, but also extremely healthy as it is rich in potassium, vitamins and protein.


The 3rd year in a row at the Tewes potato farm

For many years, the potato festival has been a popular excursion destination during the heather bloom. Visit the traditional and popular potato festival at the Tewes farm, because here you can learn a lot of interesting facts and exciting stories about potatoes directly from the producer. After many successful years on the Wietzer Berg, the festival is now taking place for the third year in a row on the beautiful Tewes family farm. Enjoy the atmosphere under the old oak trees in front of a picturesque backdrop and take a look into the barn or have the bagging machine explained to you.


Artisans and traders present their wares

Discover a wide range of offerings from regional products to handicrafts - the potato festival not only offers culinary delicacies, but is also a popular address for artisans and traders. Discover wood carvings, honey, hand-woven products, clothing, jams and regional specialties available for purchase here.


Bulbous delicacies and social gatherings

Fun for young and old, delicious food for everyone - you can win your winter supply of potatoes on the wheel of fortune or dig up the tubers yourself. In the field next door you have the opportunity to collect your fresh heather potatoes yourself with a wheelbarrow and sacks. Children in particular will have great fun here. Then fortify yourself with a variety of regional delicacies such as potato pancakes, fried potatoes, sour meat, Knipp bratwurst or steaks. However, Farmer Tewes' specialty are the small potatoes from the large cast iron pan, served with a refreshing quark dip. Fresh butter cake or bread with homemade sausage complete the offering.


Combined with a trip to the Wietzer Berg

Discover the area around the potato farm - take advantage of your visit to the potato festival and combine it with a trip to Wietzer Berg. From there you have a wonderful view over the (hopefully) blooming heathland and the potato and grain fields. Follow the Heidschnuckenweg (Wiezendorf-Müden) or hike the Heideschleife, which takes you from Wietzer Berg to Müden and back again.
