Dexterity is put to the test in the “milking competition”, old traditions are revived with “butter pounding” and
you can find out more about the legendary “Cleopatra bath”.
At the “milkbar” you can discover the variety of the South Tyrolean dairy products, enjoy regional products and tasting cheese and yoghurt.
