Majestic autumn in the Wilder Kaiser region
A riot of colours, surrounded by glorious Alpine scenery
"Autumn is winter's spring." So said the French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. You might easily think he had been inspired by autumn on the Wilder Kaiser. After all, the Kaiser autumn in the four villages of the Kaiser region, Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll is like a journey to new worlds: unimaginable experiences, culinary feasts, Mountain Doctor weeks and lots more.
Set off with your friends or family on a journey of discovery through the richly coloured landscape of the Wilder Kaiser in autumn. The fresh mountain air enlivens the spirits, and the golden autumn sunshine gives an extra energy boost for the events we have planned for the Kaiser autumn. Here on the Wilder Kaiser winter's spring has lots to offer!
Full range of accommodation options up to the end of October
Don't the nights get longer in autumn? Yet another reason to live each day to the full! On the Wilder Kaiser lots of places and destinations are open until the end of October. Cable cars, alpine huts or restaurants ... in the Tirolean Alps the holiday season doesn't run out of steam that quickly. So our guests can enjoy the Almabtrieb, when the cattle come back down from the Alpine pastures, the Ellmau Autumn Night and the Brass Band Music Festival&, all of which add variety, local cuisine, and a special atmosphere!

The best of autumn
The leaves are falling and spirits are rising – there's a lot going on in autumn on the Wilder Kaiser: You'll be tempted by our Family Autumn Weeks, which include a free cable car ticket to get you out into the picture-perfect Alpine world of autumn. The Almabtrieb, when the cattle come back down from the Alpine pastures, and the autumn music festival, with its folk and pop music stars, give everyone – cattle and humans alike – a chance to shake a leg. And if you're a fan of the TV star "The Mountain Doctor" you can meet him in person during our Bergdoktor Weeks.

Autumn walks and hikes
Whether it's spring or autumn, Mother Nature knows how to reveal herself in all her beauty. When the leaves on the Wilder Kaiser are turning from deep red to golden brown and the meadows and pastures are a lush green, there's a glorious panoramic backdrop, perfect for long hikes. And here's a little tip: so that nothing dampens the mood, it's best to choose a walk that keeps you in the sunshine and doesn't venture too high.

Great alternatives for when the weather is not so magnificent
When thinking about classic autumn weather, opinions tend to differ sharply. While some people find autumn wet, grey and foggy, others delight in the blaze of colour, mild temperatures and golden autumn sunshine. In the Alps we incline towards a sunny frame of mind! Thanks to its favourable geographical position, the Wilder Kaiser is in fact a fog free zone. And chilly nights are generally followed by mild days. So the conditions are ideal for prolonging our local summer for a few more days.
But if on occasion the weather doesn't play ball, there are plenty of alternative ways of enjoying what the mountains have to offer.
If you like swimming and saunas, we recommend a day in the KaiserBad. Another sporting option is indoor sport in the local climbing halls. Culture enthusiasts will appreciate highlights such as the Kufstein Fortress or one of the museums in and around the Wilder Kaiser.
