Dunament Fish Festival

Equidistant from the river’s Black Forest spring and its Black Sea estuary, the town of Mohács is the perfect location for the Dunament (Danube's) Fish Festival.

The event is both gastronomic and cultural, centred around cultural values and the celebration of Danube fish dishes, most particularly the Mohácsi Halászlé, as featured in the Baranya (Region) Treasury. Organised by the Hungarian Germans (the Swabians), the event centres around Swabian traditions and folk art, with festival entertainment provided by performances from Hungarian folk-dance groups, bands, singers, and Austrian performers. Handicraft and folk-art fairs will add to the atmosphere, while plenty of children’s activities await our younger visitors.
