Hear about journey to South Tyrol, Italy as the Novice Traveler talks to Lynne Nieman about this beautiful region in northern Italy.
Lynne says, “what I would say is almost certainly gonna be geared extra toward individuals who do want to be in the outdoors, or at least, you really do not have to be some form of hardcore, hiker or ski or a little something like that. But even someone that just appreciates the wonderful outdoor appreciates gorgeous mountains.”
“The Dolomite peaks are there. And, of training course, the Dolomites are also a UNESCO entire world heritage site. There are nine full Dolomite parks. And I. 6 of them are in the larger Trentino Alto Adige location, maybe three or 4 of those that are particularly in South Tyrol. So it’s a fantastic put to take pleasure in the landscape or get out into the landscape, get out into the mountains.”
“There’s beautiful, charming villages. There is heaps of castles. If you are a big city individual, this is not your location, but if you like the tiny charming cities, some historic sites, and a beautiful organic landscape, then South Tyrol is for you.”
Lynne starts us in Castelrotto, which we use as a base for viewing the alpine meadow place of Alpe di Siusi. This is a stunning, minimal-impression hiking knowledge. It is not like hiking the Alta By way of 1, which we talked about lately.
She endorses a visit to the Prösels Castle, which sits under the Schlern mountain, or the castle around the town of Campo Tures by the Austrian border.
You can just take a working day hike up to some of the mountain huts or hütte in the region, like Pederü Mountain Hut, Sennes Hütte, or Fanes Mountain Hut. You can keep right away if you guide in advance or just do a day excursion.
Make a stop at the wonderful Lago di Braies (Lake Braies) with its wonderful green waters, or halt at the Augustinian abbey of Novacella in which the monks have been building wine for practically 900 many years. Pay a visit to the little village of Santa Maddalena in the gorgeous Val di Funes. If you take pleasure in driving winding mountain roadways, Lynne also suggests the drive about Passo Gardena.
If you really like the outdoors, then make a go to to South Tyrol in Italy.

Many thanks for taking me back again to Adelaide, wherever I expended 3 months on scholar trade in 1992. Shout-out to Concordia School!
But I do have to weigh in on the Captain Hahn controversy, because I was amazed when you, Chris, explained that he was Danish, not German. Mainly because the identify is clearly German.
What happened is that he was born on the island of Sylt, which experienced semi-autonomy within the Danish Kingdom and turned section of Prussia in 1866 (immediately after Hahn’s dying).
So, it may perhaps effectively have been that he was a Danish citizen, but ethnically and linguistically, he was most possibly German (or Prussian). He also sailed on a German ship and took German settlers to South Australia.
Ahead of the time of nation states, I usually find it a bit tough to say that an individual was of this or that citizenship. Specifically so when it comes to multi-ethnic empires or, like in the situation of Germany, to nations around the world that only did not exist at the time. (Germany as a country condition was only set up in 1871, immediately after Hahn’s demise. Even so, that doesn’t signify that people today did not have a idea of becoming German ahead of, at least due to the fact the [failed] revolution of 1848.)
And even much more so in that fraught area, which gave us the famous Schleswig-Holstein query.
Until eventually these days, there is a German minority in Denmark and a Danish minority in Germany, both equally safeguarded by laws and treaties.
I contact on this in my report about a very extended practice experience from Germany to Sweden, to close on a travel-related take note: https://andreasmoser.blog/2021/08/30/teach-stockholm/
