In the face of #Iorestoacasa, or #stayathome, the concierge had the opportunity to take his "old" camera, a Canon EOS 400D, out of the closet and deliver these quick shots to you. Even though the camera is heavy, and the memory card has the size and weight of the latest generation of mobile phones, the photos are still impressive.
Don't worry. These pictures won’t be the last ones you see from here.
Apples, apples, apples. Apples everywhere. Speaking of apples: Since there are no guests around these days, the apples, which are usually given as small presents, have to be processed.
What do you do with apples? Strudel? No, the apples have to be eaten immediately. Apple fritters? No, they're only really delicious when they're hot. Apple juice? No, our neighbour’s been making apple juice for quite some time now and better than we will ever be at it.
What to do with so many apples?
Bride Tamara is accompanied by her father Bernhard and the mayor of Terlano, Klaus Runer, to say the most important “yes” of her life.
She is running a bit late, before the yes, she reflects on her choices with a nice cup of coffee.
The roof of the cabriolet is only opened slightly as to not freeze the bride to death. At last, autumn arrived in Terlano as well.
The weeding photos afterwards are shot at the Vilpiano waterfall and the wedding dinner with over 100 guests is held by a colleague near our hotel.
Compliments to the driver for his well taken care of Lady.
We wish the bride and groom a happy and long life, and for grandfather Bernhard, lots of grandkids.
A group of ambitious bikers settled down at the Sparerhof for the night, after having completed their first days’ worth of cycling from Malles to Merano and finally to the Sparerhof. Here they relaxed mind and muscles and prepared themselves for the further journey.
At arrival they performed a Jodel, that could be heard from one end of the village to the other. However, some claim their talents where aided by the great tasting beer they granted themselves after an exhausting day on their bikes.
After a light dinner, rich in carbohydrates, they decided to rest, but of course not before having a delightful conversation with the concierge.
In the morning after treating themselves to a breakfast with various homemade jams, cakes, yogurt, typical south Tyrolean whole grain bread, they took a goodbye picture for the concierge before the went on their way down the cycling path along the Adige to Trento.
By tomorrow, they should arrive at the lake.
Breaking news: We received word the group has arrived at the lake and even sent a picture of their refreshing bath in the Lago di Garda.
The official partner of BMW motorcycles from Thailand visited us during their Enduro tour.
The staff of BMW Thailand, with lots of fans following them, visited some of the most scenic parts of South Tyrol. Some of the highlights are certainly the visit to a local glacier, where the riders from hotter and more humid climates touched fresh snow for the first time in their lives.

The perfect time to leap into the pool! But be warned!
The ground may be slippery when wet, even the more seasoned pool divers should be careful not to spend such beautiful weather in the hospital!
It’s best to enjoy these hot afternoons from the inside of our swimming pool.
Pssst! They're still sleeping! Under the warm March sun, the white asparagus "Margarete" are almost ready. Protected with care, they are patiently waiting to be harvested. Not only will they soon wake up, so will our hunger. A welcome sight for our eyes, and diet.
