Italy or Austria? Summer or Winter holidays? Italian Dolce Vita or Austrian Gemütlichkeit? Spaghetti or Knödel? Apérol Spritz or Hugo? City or Mountains? That’s the question. But you don’t have to choose… you can find it all in South Tyrol! In Gitschberg Jochtal to be precise.
Last week I went to Gitschberg Jochtal-Rio Pusteria, Italy with a group of travel bloggers. Our local guide made sure we saw all the hotspots! We visited Brixen-Bressanone, Bruneck-Brunico, a cheese factory & museum, an organic wine farm, we went biking, hiking, swimming and (you know me) shopping.
But most of all… we tasted all the local delicacies: Kaiserschmarrn (Emperor’s Trifle), schlutzkrapfen pasta, apfelstrudel, schüttelbrot, tiroler speck, goat cheese and all the different types of knödel (bread dumplings) you can imagine! Thank God for the hiking activities, because otherwise I really don’t know how we would have burned all those calories…
