The winter refreshment stops have opened their doors
Cheers and enjoy your meal!
Is there anything more wonderful than sitting in a warm mountain inn quenching your thirst with a refreshing drink after a long ski run, toboggan run or snowshoe hike? Ahhhhhhh! Add an apple strudel or hearty cold meats and cheese platter and your day is perfect!
In the Gitschberg Jochtal holiday region there are loads of mountain inns and restaurants that are worth stopping at in the winter. There are rustic ski huts on the edge of the slope where you can practise your parallel stops with a mulled wine, Schneewittchen (Snow White) or heiße Oma (Hot Grandma), which are the names of just some of the après-ski drinks by the way. Or visit a classic mountain restaurant where you can enjoy the bright winter day on its sun terrace and reward yourself for your sporting efforts with a warm apple strudel.
There are plenty of refreshment stops but our personal tip is the Malga Fane/Fane-Alm rustic mountain inn village above Valles/Vals. Several mountain inns there serve hearty South Tyrolean meals in quaint little rooms. Cheese gnocchi, Kaiserschmarrn pancakes or quark strudel are more delicious here than almost anywhere else in South Tyrol!
