Autumn holiday: colourfulness in South Tyrol
With a high contrast firework of colors autumn arrives in the mountains of South Tyrol. Honey yellow, crimson and golden brown foliage on the trees and the dark green of the pines and firs lights create exciting contrasts. In the autumn holiday, many people ask the question: Holiday in October, but where? The beautiful nature of the South Tyrolean mountains provide the right solution. From the peaks you have an overwhelming distance vision and hiking trails on the Keschtnweg in Isarco Valley run under the brightly colored canopy of countless chestnut trees.
Colourful events calendar during your autumn holiday
No boredom in your autumn holiday in South Tyrol is allowed. The events calendar is bulging and during your autumn holidays you cannot miss the participation in the seasonal events. On the apple plateau Naz-Sciaves a good harvest is celebrated with the Apple Festival. The highlight of the event is the annual election of the new Apple Queen. Culinary highlights include the Sunnseitn apple weeks in the city of Bressanone. At this time it’s all about specialties from freshly harvested, sun-ripened apples. The celebrations are detached from the chestnut weeks, lasting from late October to early November. The focus is on the delicious chestnuts that have matured in South Tyrol in October. Other culinary events in the autumn are the South Tyrolean bread and strudel market in Bressanone, the speck festival in Funes and the Brixen Weinherbst, where you can join a guided Törggele excursion with wine tasting.
