Region: Meran and environs
For many people, autumn is a gray and rainy period during which they prefer to stay at home. Anyone who agrees with this opinion has probably never visited Passeiertal in the fall months. Cause there, as in many places in South Tyrol, the tradition of "Törggelen" is in season.
Törggelen means chatting in a friendly get-together, joking and especially enjoying: The guests are pampered with traditional South Tyrolean products and food such as dumplings, bacon, smoked sausages and, of course, the famous roasted chestnuts. Immature, "new" wine won’t miss, too, at any feast of this kind.
Furthermore, the autumn in Passeiertal is anything but gray: It shows its brightest and most colorful side then. While taking a relaxing walk through red-yellow foliage, you can enjoy the last warming sunbeams before the cold winter comes. The Hiking-Törggelen-Week in St. Leonhard combines exactly those two advantages of autumn.
For a whole week you’ll stay in a cheerful group and go with them on the most beautiful hikes in and around St. Leonhard. So you’ll visit museums, traditional farms and at the end of the days you can regain your strength in a cozy Törggelen restaurant.
