A highlight of South Tyrol? The variety of the cuisine
  • Alpine-Mediterranean Cuisine
  • Gastronomy weeks including the “Kuchlkastl” Kitchen Pantry and “Berglertafel” Mountaineers’ Banquet events
  • Vast offer: From gourmet to traditional fare
In no other place will you find such a refined blend of Alpine and Mediterranean cuisine as in South Tyrol. Sweet Kaiserschmarren pancakes and canederli dumplings can be found on restaurant menus alongside delicious antipasti and Italian pasta dishes.

Amongst the highlights of the local gastronomy, we find speciality weeks and gourmet days all through the year: The “Völser Kuchlkastl” in Fiè/Völs in October is one of the longest-standing gastronomy weeks in the Dolomite region, and offers traditional dishes prepared with class. The open-air speciality events are also extremely popular, and include the “Berglertafel” Mountaineers’ banquet with a view over the Catinaccio/Rosengarten, the Tabbla Toò feast on the Seiser Alm or the Krausen banquet on the Monte Calvario/Kofel in Castelrotto/Kastelruth.

The gastronomy of South Tyrol amazes with its variety: Alongside the Alpine-Mediterranean blend, the offer also ranges from gourmet cuisine to traditional home cooking. And the restaurants and eateries are as varied as the food itself: The choice is yours: stop off at a rustic Alpine hut or “Buschenschank” wine tavern, or savour the menu of a gourmet restaurant.
