Törggelen in South Tyrol

Every year from October to the start of the Advent season, locals and guests take part in one South Tyrol’s most beloved traditions: Törggelen. Törggelen has a long and storied history. Long ago in autumn, South Tyrolean farmers and wine merchants met to sample the young wines. Today, Törggelen unites culinary delights with autumn hikes in the colourful landscape. After hiking through the pr istine nature, guests arrive at traditional Buschenschank farmhouse inns to eat Schlutzkrapfen, dumplings, salted meats and homemade sausages and sauerkraut. This feast is complemented by new wine followed by roasted chestnuts and sweet Krapfen pastries for dessert.
