Innsbruck is wonderfully beautiful in all seasons, but autumn is my absolute favorite time of year. The leaves change color, it's no longer too hot and the air is much clearer. Best conditions to explore the colorful Innsbruck and its surroundings.
I'll show you where you can really experience Innsbruck's autumn! Come with me to my new photo love story - rustling under your feet guaranteed!
Ambras Castle with its beautiful, spacious castle park and forest is a dream in autumn. The castle is located in the south of Innsbruck and is easy to reach by public transport.
The many deciduous trees glow in all kinds of warm colors and a walk here is practically a must for every guest and for every Innsbruck resident. If you are lucky, you might see one of the peacocks. The inside of the castle is also very worth seeing and interesting. The highlight is the Spanish Hall.
A walk along the Inn promenade will also offer you many autumnal views. Don't forget your camera! Let the pictures do the talking.
Hike along the Swiss Pine Trail
The Innsbruck Swiss Pine Trail is widely known. On the local mountain Patscherkofel, the unencumbered hiking trail leads over to the Glungezer. The most beautiful time on the Zirbenweg is during the alpine rose blossom and in autumn. If you also want to have a summit experience, I recommend either the Viggarspitze or the Neunerspitze along the way. Especially at sunset a dream and with the evening ride of the Patscherkofelbahn every Thursday well combinable.
Forest tramway and Paschberg
A ride on the affectionately named Waldstraßenbahn (forest streetcar) line 6 from Innsbruck to Igls is particularly beautiful. The return journey to Innsbruck takes you via Lanser See, the Lanser Moor and the Paschberg. On Saturdays you can also take a nostalgic ride with the Tyrolean Museum Railways. Please note that line 6 only runs on weekends and the nostalgia train from May to the end of October. This excursion can also be combined with the Ambras Castle.
Burning larches on the Mieminger Plateau
On the Mieminger Plateau you can find especially many larches. The end of October, beginning of November is always the time when the needles of this tree begin to turn fiery red. The so to speak "burning" landscape I have captured you in a video.
I hope you have found a little inspiration and can enjoy the autumn to the fullest. The colorful season is not only beautiful and offers the best photo motifs, but also already prepares anticipation for the pre-Christmas period. I'm thinking of kiachln and mulled wine and the many beautiful Christmas markets in Innsbruck. If you are interested in autumnal photo tours, you can also visit my homepage.
Until then, have a good time!
