Aldranser Alm, Schnapsglas
Autumn is the time of year in Tirol when preparations are in full swing at local distilleries to turn local fruit and turnips into schnapps. As winter arrives, the distilling process begins. When it comes to drinking these fine, fruity and formidable creations, however, there is no special season. Anytime is good! Just remember one thing: if you are invited to a local person's house and offered a glass of schnapps, it is considered impolite to decline. Scroll down to find out about some of the best schnapps from the region. "Cheers!", or as we say here in Tirol: "Prost!"

Everywhere you look you see dashes of vibrant colour decorating the balconies of the traditional wooden farmhouses. Those are my first unforgettable impressions of the Wildschönau region. For people unfamiliar with the local geography, the valley is divided up into four “church villages”: Niederau, Oberau, Auffach and Thierbach. Here are my personal top tips for anyone visiting the beautiful Wildschönau region.
