Autumn in Vinschgau
When it becomes colder down in the valley, the mountains seem to be close at hand, when the apples get red, then autumn moves in and with him also the warmest season of the year.
It sounds controversial, but it isn’t. In autumn the farmers actuate the wood-stove in their snuggeries, they roast chestnuts and they pour fresh cider and new wine to their guests. Right. We are talking about "Törggelen" the characteristic harvest-evenings in South Tyrol, which have a long tradition especially in Vinschgau.
But not only the harvest evenings have a long tradition in Vinschgau Valley, also the All Soul's market in Glurns, the smallest city in Italy, looks back to a long history. At All’ Souls Day, at the beginning of November, Glurns is venue of a big market. Whole Vinschgau meets here. They talk about the harvest and everyday life and can find everything they need during the cold winter-months.
