A culinary trip through the alleys of Klausen, with many South Tyrolean ‘Törggele’ specialities and colourful entertainment.
The southern Eisacktal starts its fifth season of the year - the Törggele season- in September.’ (Törggelen is a South Tyrolean traditional celebration of the annual wine harvest). Three Saturdays in the artists’ town of Klausen are dedicated entirely to the tradition of “Törggelen" and lots of stalls are set up in the alleys of Klausen offering delicious South Tyrolean specialities: dumplings, ‘Schlutzkrapfen’, home-made sausage and salted pork with cabbage, ‘Krapfen’, ‘Strauben' and roast chestnuts. Local Eisacktal white wine rounds off the culinary offerings. The whole event is framed by a lively entertainment programme and lots of folk music and fun. This autumn event begins with the traditional coronation of the ‘Törggele Queen’. The final highlight is a festive parade through Klausen’s enchanting narrow streets and lanes.
