Your 4-star-superior Leitlhof Hotel in September

Autumn starts on the South Tyrolean Dolomite Alps

Experience the lush change in the Hochpustertal natural environment, when summer slowly comes to an end. The last hay harvest is drying on the hayracks that dominate the landscapes and provides the typical smell of an autumn mountain landscape.

September brings life to the apple tree meadows and vineyards, it’s harvest time and the cattle returns from the pastures, experience the festive ceremony of driving the cattle from the pastures to the valley. 

Active outdoors

The colourful September makes the hiker’s heart leap for joy. Hochpustertal offers a wide range of hiking opportunities. September hikes to the Sextner alpine huts are especially worth the effort, not only because of the traditional South Tyrolean specialties offered at the huts.

Culinary in the valley’s centre

During the popular Pitchfork Weeks in September the regional farmers offer their homemade delicacies and local artisans sell handmade artwork.

During the harvest season you enjoy sweet South Tyrolean apples and the typical, delicious Pusterer potatoes at the fruit and vegetable markets. The vintage produces traditional South Tyrolean wines, which you can also enjoy with your meal at the Leitlhof Hotel Restaurant. 

Culture and events in Hochpustertal

Apart from the special Pitchfork Weeks, you can also visit the festive ceremony of driving the cattle from the pastures to the valley, the South Tyrolean farmers’  “Almabtrieb”, in September.

Fans of classical music will be able to enjoy superb concerts from great composers like Haydn and Wagner during the South Tyrol Festival at the Grandhotel Culture Centre in Toblach.
