2. Shop
Then shop ‘till you drop and get the gear: Leather breeches for men and a dress with a wide skirt, bodice and an apron for ladies. In German they are called “Lederbundhosen” and “Dirndl”.  

3.  Select
Then select your place in Heaven – perhaps the most beautiful village in Southtyrol? Or a typical hut in the mountains? – click on image

4.  Hike

With your suitcase packed, this kind of destination awaits you: ‘Südtirol‘, located between Insbruck and Trient (Italy), German-Austrian speaking, picturesque villages with a distinctively Italian flavour and scenery dominated by the Dolomites (UNESCO world inheritage) and a climate with 300 days of sunshine per year! And if you don’t fancy going on your own, you can do this in company.

You are lying in a summer meadow amidst wild flowers, basking in glorious sunshine, chewing on a ‘Grasshalm’, looking up into a perfectly blue sky and at snow-capped mountains, bees humming, listening to cowbells ringing and eating a picnic of home-made bread, cheese, ‘roher Schinken’ (smoked ham), with local wine or an ‘Almdudler’ (herb flavoured lemonade).

Ready for a long hike now? Choose from one of many clearly marked routes which tell you exactly for which ability any one of the trails is suitable.
