Every year in May, Gutau becomes a place of festivity. Blueprinters and crafters from five European countries meet for the traditional Blue Dyeing Market in the Mühlviertel.

On Sunday, 5th May 2024, the market square and neighbouring streets will be filled with “blue printing”.

An entertaining programme with live music, a fashion show, guided tours through the dyer’s museum and the church, indigo dyeing demonstrations and excellent food will complete the day.

The application period for the Blue Dyeing Market 2024 has begun!

On the first Sunday in May, the 2022 Blue Dyeing Market celebrated its 20th anniversary. As every year, visitors from near and far came to Gutau to experience the colourful event. Craftsmen and women proudly displayed their skills and presented their products.

This year, we were especially pleased to receive coverage from Mühlviertel.TV, who produced a report on the market.
