We continue our journey after an ample breakfast in Munich and arrive at our destination, the Vettererhof in Lana, at around 2 pm. The view from our balcony passes muster :-)
After a little rest, unpacking our suitcases and a quick run for groceries we head for dinner at the Rebmannkeller. The loss of the Verve – one of my favourite restaurants in Bielefeld – and its magnificent Knödeltris (bread dumplings) is still fresh in my mind, so I go for the obvious choice from the menu.
The next day, we decide to start small and pick out a walk through the Gaulschlucht, a ravine which starts in the middle of Lana. On our way there, we walk along one of Lana’s main streets and through a pedestrian-only shopping zone and get a first impression of the place. There may be more pristine villages in South Tyrol, but everything important is just a short walk away.
