Another favorite is the "Marende," a Tyrolean snack platter featuring cheese, bacon, and Kaminwurzen sausages, often accompanied by cold roast pork, horseradish, and rustic bread. And who could forget the ever-popular "Kasspatzln"? For those with a sweet tooth, the "Kiachl" is a must-try: these are yeast dough pastries that, once golden brown, are sprinkled with powdered sugar and enjoyed with cranberry jam. In the spirit of Tyrolean hospitality, "Enjoy your meal!" or as they say, "an Guatn."
ÖTZTAL: INTERESTING FACTS AND UNIQUE FEATURES
Did you know that one of Tyrol's most picturesque side valleys gets its name from its main town, Ötz? The name "Ötz" or sometimes "Etz" traces back to the Middle High German word "ëzzen," which means "to eat," and is essentially a nod to "pasture" or "grazing land."
The valley also made headlines with the discovery of "Ötzi," an Ice Age mummy from around 3300 B.C., unearthed from the icy embrace of the Ötztal Alps in 1991.
Another gem from the Ötztal is its unique dialect, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage in 2010, with a rich tradition spanning nearly 900 years. When visiting, you'll be warmly greeted with a "Grias enk."
