Fireworks of colours:
autumn holidays in South Tyrol
In your autumn holiday in South Tyrol you will be welcomed by a firework of colours. The leaves on the trees shine in honey yellow and bright red. The deep green of the spruce forests creates a fascinating contrast to the colour play of nature in autumn. In this season, the apples are harvested in The Isarco Valley. With the Apple Festival on the apple plateau of Naz/Sciaves the season experiences its absolute highlight. Each year the new Apple Queen is crowned during this event. Another cultural attraction in autumn is the Chestnuts Weeks in the Isarco Valley. From late October to early November in the South Tyrolean Alps it’s all about the delicious roasted chestnuts.
Törggelen in Val Luson – living traditions in South Tyrol
Autumn is the time of Törggelen in South Tyrol. In the taverns in the Luson Valley there is the scent of roasted chestnuts and hearty dishes. Törggelen is a time of culinary delights. Hearty Schlutzer and traditional pork dishes are served in many places, together with the new wine of the current season. On your walks during the autumn holidays in South Tyrol in the pubs and lodges you may taste naturally cloudy apple juice, which is a tasty refreshment after an exhausting hike. First snow fields on the mountain tops announce the nearby winter and an idyllic peace is spreading across the rugged landscape of the Luson Valley.
