AUTUMN TIME - DECELERATION – TRADITIONS Part 1/2
In Tyrol and Upper Austria you can feel a certain cosiness in autumn. Whereas in summer the focus was still on bathing fun and lively activities, the autumn months are the ideal opportunity to shift down a gear. If you are planning a camping holiday in autumn, you can look forward to pure relaxation and countless pleasurable moments!
Romantically inclined guests at the Zugspitz Resort Ehrwald should be aware of the Sundays in September and October. Early risers can go up to the summit of the Zugspitze before daybreak. When the sun rises and sends its rays over the surrounding mountain peaks, you will experience a unique nature spectacle. And you can watch this scene while enjoying a sumptuous breakfast buffet in the panorama summit restaurant!
Those of you who prefer to sleep in in the morning can visit the traditional farmers' and craftsmen's market at the beginning of October. Here you can admire "old treasures" at the vintage car and tractor show, marvel at beautiful handicraft products and, of course, enjoy delicious culinary specialities from regional agriculture!
When the fairy-tale-like forests slowly turn golden yellow in autumn and the glacier streams rush down faster than in summer, hiking is a particularly enjoyable activity. If you like, you can participate in one of the guided tours and let state-certified hiking guides show you the highlights of the region.
Maybe you fancy enjoying an original Tyrolean evening with yodelling performances and Schuhplattler (possible until October) or visiting one of the famous farmers' markets in Innsbruck? There is a tempting smell of cheese, bacon, sausages and "Tiroler Kiachl" in the air, which will entice you as soon as you arrive!
When autumn arrives in the Ziller valley, the temperatures are ideal for a wide range of activities. Cyclists, for example, can enjoy the ride without breaking a sweat, and golfers also have the opportunity to successfully complete their game without fighting the elements when competing on the par 71 golf course in Uderns. By the way, this course is one of the "Leading Golf Courses of Austria". You will be impressed by its dreamlike location and the fantastic views.
A special experience in the crystal-clear autumn air is the visit of the panorama terrace on the Hintertux Glacier (3250 metres). Or how about a hike to Italy to the Pfitscherjochhaus?
At the traditional "Törggelen", all gourmets and connoisseurs get their money's worth. You don't even have to leave the campsite, because everything is taking place in the Brantlhof restaurant on site. With the delicious Törggelen menu comes a small bottle of wine, which awaits you as part of the holiday package!
Those who prefer culinary delicacies combined with Tyrolean handicrafts will love the "Golden Autumn" package. The package from Camping Seeblick Toni includes, among other things, a welcome dinner, a hearty farmer's breakfast and a visit to the big autumn festival. Treat yourself to a week of relaxation and deceleration!
At Euro-Camp Wilder Kaiser, you don't need to worry about the weather forecast at all, because the gorgeous indoor and outdoor pools in the wellness area are pleasantly heated all year round. You are also guaranteed not to freeze in the sauna and steam bath!
But your plans may look quite different after all, because the region's calendar of events is close to overflowing in autumn. Whether it's a guided hike, a theatre performance by the "Heimatbühne" or the big folk music event, there's plenty of variety on offer. Perhaps you would like to take part in this year's beach volleyball tournament in Kössen in September?
When the temperatures are lower, it's the best time to conquer the highest accessible summit cross in the world. It towers 30 metres into the bright autumn sky, and the all-round view from here is stunningly beautiful.
In the evening, you can treat yourself to a fragrant Kaiserschmarrn (pancake) as a reward for your little challenge. If you want to recharge your batteries, you can do so at the "Energiebrunnen" (energy fountain), in the "Erlebnis- und Lichtduschen" (experience and light showers), in the panorama indoor and outdoor pool (open all year round) or in the aroma steam bath. But there is one thing you will definitely not find here: Hectic. Tirol Camp Fieberbrunn stands for deceleration!
Autumn holidays at Lake Wolfgangsee are a real treat. This is a particularly good time for a trip to the Postalm. Austria's largest alpine plateau is no longer as busy as it is in summer, so you can enjoy the beauty of this unique landscape in peace and quiet.
By the way, from 09 to 11 September, the third Volkswagen Classic will take place on the Postalm: a spectacular classic car event with a charity drive. The autumn market, so-called "Traktoria", an arts and crafts market and, of course, the popular "Almabtrieb" (alpine pasture harvesting) are two additional highlights that will make your autumn holiday at Lake Wolfgang an unforgettable experience.
