Autumn is a wonderful time of year to explore Tirol on foot. As the trees shed their golden-brown leaves and the clear air offers wonderful views of the mountains and valleys, it's time to pull on your walking boots and head for the hills. Here are some of the best autumn hikes in the region.
After the heat and hectic of summer, autumn is a more gentle and peaceful time of year. As the leaves turn red, yellow, orange and brown, it is an ideal opportunity to get out and explore Tirol on foot before the snows of winter arrive. Many hikes are suitable for families, with the trails remaining safe for children even in wet weather. Golden forests, lush meadows and rushing streams make for a memorable day out. Highlights include the hike through the tree-lined Tiefenbachklamm gorge near Kramsach or across the open expanses of Pfundser Tschey, a high-alpine valley in the west of Tirol dotted with traditional wooden hay huts. We also recommend a visit to the Eulenwiesen, an area of pastureland near the mighty Serles mountain south of Innsbruck. And, last but certainly not least, walkers and hikers in search of a challenge should head for the Binsalm in the Karwendel Nature Park, leaving from the spectacular Ahornboden with its centuries-old sycamore trees.
