The climate in South Tyrol
The climate in South Tyrol should be imagined as follows: The Alps in the north of the region keep off the uncomfortable, cold north winds. The warm, humid air of the Mediterranean region are held south of the Dolomites, which means it also rains less in South Tyrol. The region is therefore well protected all around and offers optimum cycling weather! In general, the weather in the north is more like Austrian weather. The further south you head, the more Mediterranean it gets!
South Tyrolean cuisine
The cuisine of South Tyrol is usually associated with hearty home cooking. Of course, you can feast on a faultless pizza or great pasta dish. However, the South Tyroleans are better known for their fantastic spinach dumplings with brown butter, the Schlutzkrapfen and traditional Törggelen. This is an old custom in which harvesters were invited to a meal to taste the new season wine. In addition, a variety of South Tyrolean specialities were served. Previously, these were roasted chestnuts, nuts and sweet doughnuts. The main course featured simple farmer’s dishes such as barley soup, bacon, sausages and rye bread. These days the custom has changed a bit – hearty slabs of meat, sausages, sauerkraut and dumplings now delight the palate of guests! As an old South Tyrolean saying goes: “Törggelen is about three things – the joy of work, the joy of the fruits of labour and the joy of celebrating with friends!”
