Charming fall holidays in South Tyrol
During the fall, in the Dolomites the most charming season begins; it is distinguished by bright colours and numerous outdoor activities. The sun shines abundantly from a bright blue sky and in the mountains you may enjoy an overwhelming panoramic view. The alpine huts in the Nature Park Sciliar-Catinaccio are open until early October and invite you to take a rest on sun-drenched outdoor terraces. Every now and then, the approaching winter sends its first signs that dot the high mountain peaks with white hoods. The snow-capped summits, the azure sky and the colourful deciduous forests create high-contrast colour plays in this alpine region. The traditional “Alpine Market” on the Alpe di Siusi welcomes the fall, and in early October, the annual cattle drive with festively decorated cows takes place.
Culinary highlights during your fall vacation in South Tyrol
Fall in South Tyrol is a time of culinary delights and savoury treats. The taverns and rustic inns in the Sciliar area open their doors to visitors and invite you to the ancient tradition of “Törggelen” in South Tyrol. Hearty South Tyrolean specialties and homely alpine dishes are served. Complement your meal with the young wine of the current season from the vineyards in South Tyrol. The atmosphere in the taverns is cheerful and often traditional music groups accompany the feast. The culinary highlights of the fall also include the event “Völser Kuchlkastl”.
Cultural expeditions in the fall
Charming hiking destinations await you in the fall in the area around the small village of Fiè allo Sciliar.
