Fairs and markets in the Italian Alps
The markets and fairs in the mountains are ideal places to discover local products and enjoy the typical village atmosphere. Don’t miss out on these appointments!
At the centre of the 3-day event are South Tyrol's various types of trademarked bread. As well as the culinary enjoyment available there’s also a large selection of information about the history and preparation of the breads of the South Tyrol. Visitors to the Bread and Strudel Market can watch the master bakers as they carry out their daily bread production. Those interested in the historical aspects can take a short course and go on a journey into the history of bread making.
At the church square in Algund, a large variety of specialties from the various regions along the old Roman road " Via Claudia Augusta" will be offered for sale and tasting. There will be offered products like finest wines, homemade syrups, jams and exclusive sausage products from South Tyrolean and much more.
In South Tyrol the prickly case enclosing the sweet chestnut is called a Keschtnigl, i.e., “chestnut hedgehog”. The Valle Isarco/Eisacktal is especially famous for its massive, sturdy chestnut trees and the fruit thereof. Each autumn the village of Velturno/Feldthurns on the mountainside above Chiusa/Klausen devotes a week of activities to this delicious food, including culinary delights in local restaurants and chestnut trail walks. An environmentally friendly travel is requested. Nature says thank you.
