Green bushes invite you the "Heurigen" (wine taverns) throughout the year, and, moreover, there are two big wine festivals twice a year; in Neustiftgasse in June, and in Wienerstraße in August. Here "Spitzenweine" (best table wines) can be sampled, and old and new friends of the world-famous "Gumpoldskirchner"(wine) come together.
Gumpoldskirchen also ofters its guests a comprehensive programme of culture (exhibitions and concerts).
