Palheiro’s Vera Prömer said “We are very pleased to be able to bring an authentic Austrian band to Madeira; Krauhölzl Musi are a young and dynamic group who play all over the world, including Munich & Dubai and will be performing at Palheiro on the 3rd, 4th & 5th.”

On the 5th of October we celebrate Frühschoppen, a form of traditional bavarian “brunch” where friends & family gather at midday to drink and socialise.

As well as three different kinds of German beers, the authentic menu features Weisswurst (sausages), Sauerbraten (pork loin), Rotkraut (red cabbage), Serviettenknödel (napkin dumplings), Apfelstrudel and Bavarian pretzels.
