New Year’s Eve in Brixen

The party mood of Brixen lasts until the very last day of the year. We let it crash! In the marvelous scenery of the Brixen Cathedral all the city party together into the new year. The atmosphere is heated by DJ Enzo Morgan feat. Electro Noise of Radio Studio 92, crowned by spectacular fireworks at 0.05. As tradition , the New Year waltz welcomes the new year 2017. For the culinary side and something to warm there are the various stalls of the Christmas Market as well as the inns of the old city centre. For true night owls, at Club Max the party can go on until the early morning hours.

Brixen, the city of cribs…

In just two weeks it’s Christmas, it’s incredible but true and it is high time to set up the Christmas tree as well as the traditional crib. Why not taking an idea from the life-sized statues of the cribs on display at the Christmas market, in the city centre as well as the train station. After a nice walk among the attractions of the Christmas market, where we have treated ourselves with a good glass of mulled wine, we stop at the Diocesan Museum at the Bishop’s Palace where the renowned collection of cribs is preserved. New for this year are the cribs of paper from the collection Engelhardt of the 20th century.

The cribs museum in the Bishop’s Palace is open every day until  until 8th January from 10 a.m until 5 p.m and the 17th and 18th of dicember from 9 a.m until 5 p.m

Oh what a pleasure … really. The sun is gently touching my face and I have comfortably leant back. Below me, the white snow is glimmering, the sky is shining bright blue surrounded by the giant view on the spectacular rock formations of the UNESCO World Heritage of the Dolomites.
Totally relaxed, my thoughts are already on the skis and I am riding down the next slope. There is quite some snow… a real winter wonderland! The rattling of the last cablecar post gets me back to reality. Just lift the bar and here we go. Good skiing! Maybe we will meet at the next hut…
All info on www.plose.org! Open from 3rd December 2016 to 2nd April 2017! The cable car is open daily from 8.45 am to 4.30 pm!

It is again Advent time in the bishop’s city. When the days get shorter and the temperatures fall, there is nothing more beautiful than finishing the day with some hot tea and some delicious biscuits. One of my favourite biscuits are the vanillakipferl… what was the recipe… let me think… oh yes!

Ingredients:

320 g flour

60 g almonds, unpeeled and grounded

60 g nuts, unpeeled and grounded

270 g butter

120 g sugar

2 eggs

1 pinch of salt

Preparation:

Mix the nuts with the flour. Add the sliced and diced butter, sugar, eggs and salt and knead into a smooth dough, let it then rest for one hour. Form balls from the dough, then small rolls that you then turn into little hornets. Bake in the oven at 180° for 5-7 minutes. Dip the still warm biscuits into a mix of sugar and vanilla.

Enjoy your time baking and trying!
