Guided "Törggele"-hike: discovering an ancient South Tyrolean tradition
Autumn hike with hiking guide Jörgl Kaufmann in Schenna around the theme of wine and the old South Tyrolean tradition "Törggelen".
ONLY IN GERMAN!
From the beginning of October, at the end of the grape harvest, until the beginning of the pre-Christmas season is "Törggelezeit". After leisurely walks through the golden autumn landscape, guests and South Tyroleans enjoy the products of the harvest, especially chestnuts and new wine (Sußer). On this week's hike we visit the Rastlhof.
We take the bus from the village centre of Schenna to Verdins and hike via the Wieser Steig up to the Schenner Waalweg. Via the Bergerweg we finally reach the Rastlhof and after a cosy stop for refreshments we walk back down to St. Georgen. From the starting point you are free to decide whether to return on foot or by bus.
Of course, a Törggelemenü and hearty music are not to be missed!
