O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
A real South Tyrolean in the parlour
It must reach the ceiling, be finely dressed, and not be perfect. Know who we're talking about? The Christmas tree, of course, which belongs in every good parlour at Christmas time.
Every year, we get excited like little children as we start looking for the perfect Christmas tree. Needless to stay, we always find it in our local forest, as it’s not only in our cuisine that we place great value on regionality. Our tree is a real South Tyrolean, so to speak, which reaches the ceiling of our hotel in Olang. Growing Christmas trees is a science in itself in South Tyrol, as is the date of felling the tree, which ideally takes place after full moon. Once the natural beauty is set up in the parlour, we give free rein to our creativity. Sometimes we go for Tyrolean simplicity, other times for dazzling glamour – just let yourself be surprised in which garment our Christmas tree will be awaiting you this year. We have a tip for all those who would like to bring a piece of South Tyrol home this year: decorate your Christmas tree according to old South Tyrolean tradition – with real South Tyrolean apples, (home-made) gingerbread, stars made of straw, and red candles. This Christmas tree not only delights the eye, it also pampers the palate.
We wish you a wonderful Christmas time!
