1.Gourmet delights: A pleasant walk & Törggelen
On my first day’s holiday in Algund, I start off with a gentle walk. I follow the advice of my host and stroll along the Algund Waalweg path above the Winepath
and enjoy the breathtaking view across the autumnal countryside. On the panels at the edge of the path, I read about ancient grape varieties, hardworking farmers and the Algund “Saltners” who used to watch over the harvest. After a short pause between the wine leaves, juicy grapes and delightfully mild sunbeams, I set off along the path with my stomach rumbling and find a space in the rustic parlour of a nearby restaurant. I order a tasty Törggele set meal
, because that’s what you do during an autumn holiday in South Tyrol, and enjoy schlutzer (Italian ravioli), homemade Hauswurst sausage with dumplings, the new wine and sweet doughnuts. And last but not least, I savour the traditional roasted chestnuts. Delicious – the perfect way to end the day.
