Southern Tyrol: Great Cycling in Northern Italy
It is definitely not only worth cycling in Southern Tyrol during the autumn at the time of the ‘Törggelen’! Also in spring and in the summer, this region, close to the Austrian border, has a certain charm to it.

Experience Southern Tyrol's Variety for Yourself
People talk about the ‘Törggelen’ all over the world and it really is a lively tradition. If a hearty meal is being had in autumn with good company then young wine and ‘Most’ (fruit wine, normally apple) are never far away. You should experience the ‘Törggelen’, whilst cycling through Southern Tyrol. Typical examples of food for this rustic celebration are hearty speck, rye bread and ‘Krapfen’ (doughnuts) – of course all self-produced. Whilst on a bike tour during harvest time, you should definitely take a break to experience the traditional ‘Törggelen’. After the harvest time, a feast always takes place according to ancient tradition and is hosted by the wine makers. Thanks to the harvesters, fine foods from the region can land on the table. In the spring and the summer, charming Southern Tyrol is in no way stingy; it is full of charm. The bike tour goes along lots of newly opened bike paths past swooshing streams along the southern side of the Alps. The seasons come across in a much more intensive way between the mountains and the valley. It is a dream destination for foodies, for energetic people and for anyone else who wants it to be.

On many of the bike paths, right in the north of Italy, you get presented with Italy’s original side.
