Schüttelbrot translates to "shaken bread", I have no idea why they call it like that. This is a regional speciality from Südtirol/Alto Adige, popular also in Trentino. It is flat dry bread in round shape, very crunchy but easy to chew. Its particular taste, that I liked very much, derives from caraway and fennel seeds. It goes well with Kaminwurzen, smoked sausages. In Molveno both are available at the village supermarket.
This bread makes a great snack to take on hiking trips and tours, especially the 'mini' version with pieces the size of a bite. It is lightweight and easy to carry, does not cause sticky hands and can be happily munched. You need a drink with it because it is very dry. Eating it unnoticed is impossible, though, because chewing it causes *quite* some noise. Eati it outdoors if possible because of the many crumbs.

These are the Alps and the weather can change quickly. The usual rule applies: Carry a sweater and a light rain jacket in your daypack on any hiking tour even if the weather looks glorious in the morning. Looking at the sky now and then is no mistake.
All my landscape photos were taken in the same day. The morning was as splendid as can be. In the afternoon these clouds appeared over the peaks of the Brenta massif. They did look threatening. We were lucky, though, they went a different direction.
