With the camper to Törggelen to South Tyrol – hiking with pleasure

Autumn has a very special tradition in South Tyrol: the Törggelen. From the beginning of October until the first weekend of Advent, wine taverns and farm taverns open their doors, bringing South Tyrolean delicacies to the table and donating the young wine. A tradition that can be fantastically combined with hiking. For what is better than a hearty retreat after a hike through an enchanted autumn landscape? In this collection, we have selected seven tours in South Tyrol, which unite both the beautiful landscape and the Törggelen.
The tradition of Törggelen goes back many centuries. The farmers were always visited at harvest time to taste the new wines. The culinary tradition in the wine and chestnut growing areas along the wine route has its origin. The term derives from the „Torggl“, the wine press. Today, Törggelen combines culinary delights with autumnal hikes. In good company homemade Schlutzkrapfen, dumplings, Surfleisch and sausages with sauerkraut are enjoyed and wine tasted. As a sweet ending, the innkeepers serve donuts and roasted chestnuts.
With your camper you are flexible and can choose where you want to start the next day's hike. The distances are quite short in South Tyrol, so you do not spend too much time behind the wheel between the hiking days. All hikes in this collection start either at a campsite or give you a tip where you can find a good spot for the night in the area.
