Autumn in Parcines is not only renowned for the various events relating to the Törggelen (tasting the young wine along with roast chestnuts and seasonal dishes), but also for the transhumance of the returning sheep herds, from Tel Valley to their shelters.
In september, some 1,300 head of sheep will be expected to descend on the Schutzhütte Nasereit / rifugio Nasereit. Some of the sheep, which have been marked in color, will later be separated for shearing, known here as "Schofschur".
The return of the herds from summer pastures in the Tel high mountain valley is appropriately celebrated at the Nasereit Alpine shelter, in accordance with the old farming tradition.
Our tour suggestion:
Go up using the Texel cableway then an approx. 1 hour walk towards Nasereit on the Merano High Mountain Trail (No. 24) through the Texel Group Nature Park.
