Autumn holidays in South Tyrol:
charming interchange of colours in the mountains
The autumn in the mountains of the Isarco Valley welcomes you with distinctive colour plays and a lively calendar of events. The trees shine in rich red and yellow tones and impressive shades of brown. The dark green of the pines and firs creates exciting colour contrasts, while on the mountain tops the snow-capped peaks hail the approaching winter. The Barbiano Plum Week in September and the Autumn Festival with farmer’s market in October count among the autumn event highlights in Barbiano. The culinary happening Keschtnigl in Velturno is dedicated to the tasty chestnuts. Every year, the end of the apple harvest in the Isarco Valley is celebrated with the Apple Festival on the high plateau Naz/Sciaves. The highlight of the festive activities is the coronation of the Apple Queen.
