South Tyrol's pleasures

South Tyrol has much to offer, both for food lovers and for gourmets. Traditional dishes, famous local wines, the friendliness and hospitality of wineries and restaurants are just some things that await you during a holiday in South Tyrol.

If you spend your holidays in South Tyrol, you will for sure notice that there are many culinary highlights in this region. The attention to detail, the mix of traditional recipes and innovative cooking art as well as the use of high-quality local products can best be discovered in the South Tyrolean gourmet restaurants, traditional farm taverns, historical inns or as well in remote mountain and ski huts.

Tyrolean & Italian cuisine

Without any doubt, culinary pleasure in South Tyrol is of great importance. In addition to traditional South Tyrolean dishes, gourmets can enjoy Italian and Mediterranean delicacies as well as modern interpretations of both cuisines. Using majorly regional products, the kitchen teams create delicious first and second courses as well as typical desserts.

Not to forget about the "Törggelen" tradition in autumn. The best Törggele taverns are located in Southern South Tyrol, Eisacktal and in the surroundings of Meran, serving new wine, traditional sweets, grapes and apples.

South Tyrolean wine

The scenic contrasts in South Tyrol are really big: Not very far from the snow-covered peaks of the Dolomites, you can find Mediterranean hilly landscapes with vineyards and fruit orchards. As a traditional wine-growing area, South Tyrol is known for its excellent wines with international reputation far beyond its boundaries. For instance, the Gewürztraminer white wine continues to receive international awards.

Discover the culinary variety in South Tyrol and be enchanted by the Alpine and Mediterranean charm!
