Music weeks

Without a doubt, classical music creates a special kind of atmosphere. When its gentle rhythms caress the hilly landscape that shines in the evening light, when its crescendo climbs the imposing Sciliar to evaporate in the starry summer sky into a floating adagio, time could stand still ...

Törggelen

South Tyrolean smoked bacon, dumplings and more.
The "Törggelen" is an old tradition in South Tyrol. There are several towns in the Val d’Isarco, or especially along the wine road near Bolzano, where there have always been great feasts at the end of the wine harvest. Traditionally all neighbours, helpers, friends were invited to a rich "Marende", a snack with several traditional dishes including fried chestnuts and “Susser”, the new sweet, slightly sparkling wine with just a little alcohol.
What exactly did this “Marende” consist of? It was a very rich meal with Sauerkraut, Tyrolean dumplings and smoked pork, homemade pork sausages or cold cuts with smoked homemade sausages, cheese and homemade rye bread. Traditional deep fried pastries with cranberry or chestnut filling were also served with fried chestnuts. The “Susser” was especially delicious with these dishes.
Today most traditional inns serve these dishes from October to the middle of November.
