Wonderful strolling paths, colorful autumn landscapes and rich chestnut orchards: that is the chestnut trail!

This trail is recommended from the end of September to the beginning of November, when Törggele – time begins in Isarco Valley. The trail leads you from the Monastery of Novacella (next to Brixen) along the slopes of the Isarco Valley up to the high Plateau of Ritten and then down to Bolzano basin to the impressive Castle Roncolo. The colourful landscape lets you forget everyday life and takes you into the marvellous world of autumn.

 

When autumn begins and the forests colour in South Tyrol the old tradition starts again: Törggelen. From mid-October to the beginning of December many local inns all over South Tyrol offer an insight into home-made typical dishes , prepared with regional and seasonal products of the area. Amongst others, you find some kind of ravioli, dumplings, “plattln” with cabbage and of course roasted chestnuts.

In combination with wine, produced from the regional, freshly harvested grapes, the traditional törggele meal is perfect.

However, Törggelen is not only food but also hiking in vineyards, past old farmhouses and chestnut orchards. Take part in this tasty tradition and visit one of the many local inns. We are looking forward to you!

One of the most important emblems of Brixen is the cathedral. Its origins go back to the 10th century and this means that this important church has lived through quite some events in the past centuries. Due to fires, the cathedral was rebuilt several times. After the last great fire in the 15th century, it was designed into a Gothic church with upward leading pillars. A further moment of refurbishment came in the 18th century Baroque time. It is in any case a breathtaking building from the outside as well as the inside. Let yourself be enchanted by the history of this important monument! You can visit the cathedral every day from 6 am to 6 pm. In the months of November, January, February and March (until Easter), there is a lunch break from 12-3 pm.
