Spring in South Tyrol: colour delight in the Isarco Valley
In spring, nature wakes up in the mountains of South Tyrol Valle Isarco to life. Warm air flows from the South bring the last remnants of snow in the central mountain areas to melt and color the meadows green. The first flowers crane their necks against the sun’s warming rays and in the valleys the fruit trees are in full bloom. The birds are chirping merrily in the woods and everything shows optimism. Walks through the blossoming apple orchards on the high plateau Natz / Schabs are particularly attractive in this season. Thousands of white-pink flowers exude a heady fragrance and butterflies dance from flower to flower.
Festivals and events in spring
With spring awakening in Isarco Valley, in Brixen and surroundings, the time of festivals and events begins. In the Episcopal City the elaborately staged Kassiansprozession takes place every year on the 3rd Sunday after Easter. The solemn procession goes through the winding streets of the medieval old town and during your holiday in South Tyrol in spring this event should not be missed. Another highlight in the spring is the Eisacktaler food in March. On the apple plateau of Natz / Schabs the Apple Blossom Festival is a highlight event of national importance. Local bands play for dancing and the participants will present their traditional costumes.
Nature spring pleasure in South Tyrol
In South Tyrol, spring starts much earlier than in other mountain regions of the Alps. Already in March the mild air masses invite you for hiking and cycling in the Isarco Valley. Just 100 meters from Schoberhof away the long distance cycle Brenner-Bozen runs, which you can explore in the spring sections in your holiday. Interesting bike rides in the valley lead along the river Isarco, which carries more water in spring than at any other time of year due to the melting snow in the mountains. An apple blossoms hike takes you through the blooming orchards of the region and a stroll through the historic alpine town of Chiusa is like a journey through the Middle Ages.
