The Törggele tradition in South Tyrol combines a hike through the colourful autumn landscape with a break in a traditional Törggele farm, where you can taste the new wine, and many traditional South Tyrolean dishes: bacon and cheese, ravioli with spinach and ricotta filling, dumplings, sour cabbage and sausages, but also chestnuts and doughnuts are part of the menu.
Törggelen has a long tradition in South Tyrol: hundreds of years ago, this tradition developed in the Isarco Valley, and is now very popular. Traditional Törggelen can only be experienced in the Isarco Valley.
At the Granpanorama Hotel StephansHof we live out this ancient tradition with great passion. Read more here:
