Bressanone & Surroundings
A Törggele hike across the vineyards on the valley floor of the Isarco Valley from the Monastery of Novacella to Lake Varna is a must in autumn. You can stop at one of the typical local taverns that serve excellent home-style cooking. In spring there are wonderful walks along the river Isarco, a “promenade” between blooming orchards and vineyards to the Monastery of Novacella.
Spring excursions, in the low mountain range, an ocean of blossoms.
In autumn, a chestnut hike in the middle Isarco Valley, the “Keschtnweg” (Chestnut Trail), from Velturno to Abbey of Sabiona, to Chiusa, from there back by bus to Velturno. And refreshments in the Törggele taverns with traditional cuisine and young wine.
For hot days
A hike on Sas de Putia, at the foot of the mountains. The starting point is Passo delle Erbe.
The “Geislerkino” (Odle Cinema), across the Funes Valley to the Odle Alp, is well worth a trip.
