In fall it is THE South Tyrolean tradition to celebrate Törggelen at farms that offer all kinds of typical seasonal dishes. The wine farmers offer their wine and home-made products from the farm to the public by turning their farm into a restaurant during this time. Such typical seasonal dishes would be barley broath, and spaetzle with melted cheese, bacon dumplings and roasted ribs, corned beef and sauerkraut and of course lastly the sweet chestnuts in the end can’t be missed.
A typical Törggele evening very often has a party-like atmosphere ; people eating, singing, dancing together in the cozy atmosphere of a farm’s restaurant. In Völs there are many farms that offer these traditional Törggele evenings, which can be perfectly combined with a hike on a path called Oachner Höfeweg in Völs.
