culture, tradition, territory and its people
South Tyrol welcomes you with its variety of scenic and cultural beauties: from Val Venosta to Val Pusteria, from the rugged mountain peaks to the green vineyards, you will be enchanted by fresh mountain streams, mountain crosses, noble residences and elegant castles that invite you to take a journey into the past!

The South Tyrolean cuisine satisfies all palates with its specialties and every season is characterized with typical local products. In most of the menus of the Taverns and Inns you will find Knödel (dumplings with speck, cheese or spinach) and Schlutzkrapfen (Tyrolean crescent-shaped ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinach).
