Going Handicraft Market

30 years of traditional arts

handwerkskunstmarkt_pilotenschlagen_02
Going handcraft market

The Kaiser village of Going has still retained a great deal of its original style, so it's hardly surprising that one very special tradition has been nurtured here for 30 years. On six Friday evenings in summer almost forgotten handicrafts and arts are brought to life on the little picturesque village square.

When artisans countrywomen from the village and its surrounding area set up their stands, the streets where the market is held are transformed into small, animated outdoor workshops. Enjoy a leisurely stroll from one handcraft stall to the next. Watch Simon as he nimbly lets the shuttle drop through his weaving loom and works on a new carpet, watch Rosa as she does some fine glass painting and see how Maria makes her colourful and so realistic paper flowers.

In some places you can join them and test your own skills. While Going's artisan handicraft market is a holiday-highlight for visitors, it is a welcome opportunity for locals to slip into their 'Dirndl' costume and meet at the market starting from 5 p.m. Where Klaus sharpens his scythes and Lisi and her much sought-after 'Brodakrapfen' (cheese-filled doughnuts) are not far away, next to farm wives Maria and Elisabeth freshly preparing their specialties 'Kasspatzln' and 'Germkiacheln' with a smile. Beer and elderberry juice are only a few footsteps away.

Over 100 artisans let you experience old handcrafts

Music drifts gently and harmoniously from somewhere. The women from Ellmau's Stubenmusig successfully mix their tunes on the harp, tympanon, guitar and zither with those of the trio from Söllander Hoagaschtmusig. Genuine folk music, which accompanies the hustle and bustle in the market, without wishing to dominate it. The young folk dancers and 'Schuhplattler'(thigh slapping) dancers add to an afternoon where there is so much to look at, unearth and try out like the fresh farmhouse bread from Maria, who bakes it at the market in the wood-fired oven.

Even old handicrafts which are barely practiced any more, experience a brief, yet impressive, resurrection in this natural setting between the Wilder Kaiser and the village church. Hans the blacksmith hammers large iron nails in the embers or watch Elisabeth as she shows how 'Doggl' houseshoes are made. At 8 p.m. the Going brass band makes its way to the pavilion at the market closing off the evening with a muscial programme of traditional and contemporary pieces. Surrounded by stylish sutlers, who also tempt the tastebuds of onlookers with wonderful apricot shots. The handicraft market in Going's summer of events has long become a village tradition in itself.
