Fall vacation in the Isarco Valley – Fireworks of colours in South Tyrol
An explosion of colours will welcome you in your fall holiday in the South Tyrolean Isarco Valley. The deciduous forests glow in shades of crimson and honey yellow, and the bright green of the pine trees creates beautiful contrasts. A deep blue sky spans the colourful scenery and occasionally white clouds pass over the bright limestone peaks of the mountains. Until well into October, temperatures remain mild and invite you to diverse activities in the mountains. The medieval castles in the area, such as Castle Velthurns and Castle Rodenegg, are great destinations for interesting day trips in the Isarco Valley.
Törggelen in the Isarco Valley: a culinary adventure journey in the fall holidays
Törggelen in the Isarco Valley is an ancient tradition that every year from September to November comes to new life. In this period, the taverns and quaint inns in the mountains open their doors to visitors and guests and serve the traditional culinary delights of the Alps. Hearty pork dishes, savoury mountain cheeses and tasty dumplings are served in the traditional inns. The meal is typically accompanied by a glass of fine young wine or freshly squeezed apple juice. Törggelen in the Isarco Valley looks back on a long tradition and is an integral part of the cultural heritage of South Tyrol. Hot chestnuts, called “Keschtn”, play a central role in this culinary event. The roasted brown fruits give off a truly mesmerizing scent. During the Isarco Valley Chestnut Weeks, the local kitchen chefs create a wide range of tasty dishes with “Keschtn”.
