Autumn time – pure bliss
Merano autumn-time also means Törggelen-time, a dream of roasted chestnuts and young wine. That’s why every year the traditional wineries and taverns invite you to taste their homemade specialities; Schlutzkrapfen (spinach dumplings), home-made sausages, salted meet with sauerkraut and dumplings and of course sweet doughnuts and roasted chestnuts. Törggelen is the enjoyable way to revive the old traditions, sit together comfortably and celebrate a successful autumn harvest.
