Wild Goose Festival
Welcome to the Tata Wild Goose Festival where we greet the geese the that arrive from far way in the northern tundra. The Festival is a weekend treat all nature lovers, with thousands of wild geese taking centre stage in a spectacle of sights and sounds.
The Festival takes place by the Old Lake, a special and important resting place for birds which remarkably is almost totally encircled by Tata, the “City of Waters”. Here, natural and culture are intertwined: at the heart of the city, right on the lake shore is Hungary’s most important „water castle” and the shoreline is hugged by walking paths with perfect spots for bird watching.
We look forward to meeting you at this festival of wildlife and people.
Slightly delayed, but the first migrating/wintering Greater White-fronted Geese have arrived at Old Lake’s surrounding. About 1 week later than usual, but this is likely due to mild weather. At the same time there are 1.200 Greyleg Geese on the smaller lakes....
