Autumn Splendor in South Tyrol: Törggelen & Beyond
Autumn in South Tyrol is a season of unique allure. The air is crisp and clear, perfect for mountain excursions. The landscape transforms with leaves displaying a spectrum of colors, making forest walks an enchanting chestnut hunt.
Golden-yellow and red apples adorn the trees, while grapevines are laden with bountiful clusters. It's a busy time in the wine and apple farms and cellars, as the harvest is gathered. This is also when the new wine is savored during the iconic Törggelen, an authentic local tradition worth experiencing: Schlutzkrapfen, sauerkraut with homemade and blood sausages, smoked meats, ribs, along with donuts, chestnuts, and new wine are served in the rustic Buschenschänken and Törggele venues.
A tip from us: Relish the last warm sunbeams on our sunbathing lawn until November and ready yourself for winter with rejuvenating sauna sessions.
