Wachau apricots are a popular delicacy known throughout Europe.
They are even a protected brand in the EU. What makes Wachau apricots so special is their appealing, full shape and delicate flavour, which unfolds in products such as marmalades, brandies and liquors. Apricots are also an important ingredient in local desserts, such as apricot dumplings or apricot pie.
Depending on the weather, the apricot trees in the Wachau region flower for between 10 days and 3 weeks. This spectacle of nature usually takes place between mid-March and mid-April.
