The area surrounding Bolzano is a genuine apple paradise and the largest single fruit-growing area in Europe. The best fruit grows over an area of approx. 200 km2 along the river Etsch from Salurn into the Vinschgau Valley and from Ritten to Bressanone/Brixen.

The growing areas are blessed by the ideal climate for the best harvests: a wide range of varieties grow at altitudes between 200 and 1000 metres. 300 days of sunshine per year guarantee ripe fruit. Added to this are the changing currents of hot and cold air that give the apples their juicy, fresh aroma.

Experience the apple blossom in spring or enjoy the juicy, fresh aroma of apples during harvest time in autumn.
