As we turned off the road and into the orchard, my gaze broke from the rugged alpine peaks in the distance. Adolf had started speaking and I looked to the front of the carriage to listen as he leaned over his shoulder: “And these apples get sold all over the world…” he explained, tipping his wide-brimmed felt hat towards the stout trees on our right.


Lodging is easy to book online, and I suggest you book ahead; there are a limited number of beds, and on German holidays rooms can be scarce. For best results, book through the official Eppan tourism website, they can make recommendations based on your preferred activities and transportation situation. For those wishing to stay in a piece of history, I suggest the Castle Schloss Korb; request a room in the castle’s keep for an especially unique experience.

The courtyard of Castle Beaumont.

The best way to explore Eppan is by car, and rentals are easy to find in Bolzano City. Taxis are hard to come by in the smaller villages, but for trips to and from your hotel they are easily arranged. If you plan on spending your days wandering vineyards, consider a bicycle; most hotels offer them complementary or for a small fee. Check the parking arrangements with your hotel before booking, and watch-out for those fast Italian drivers!
