The most beautiful hikes in autumn

Golden larch forests, warm light and mystical fog moods: Autumn is a really special season in Tyrol. And a real outdoor time. We have the best hikes and bike tours in autumn for you, so you can take full advantage of the season.

Hike around the Gschwandtkopf

On this round tour you can see autumn from its most beautiful side and do a little sightseeing at the same time. The path around the Gschwandtkopf passes Seefeld, Mösern and Auland near Reith. Here you can enjoy the autumn forests (in Reith the larch forests are particularly beautiful) and discover the region. If you want to extend the round a bit more, you should definitely also climb up to the Gschwandtkopf, from where you have a spectacular panorama.

Hike along the panoramic circular trail in Reith

Reith is my insider tip for a short hike in autumn: there are huge larch forests here that turn into golden colors. On the panorama trail you can dive into the woods and enjoy great views over the village and the Inn valley.

Hike to the Brunschkopf

The Brunschkopf is a panoramic mountain for every season. From the platform you can look over the whole of Seefeld and all the surrounding peaks up to the Zugspitze. The ascent to the Brunschkopf is never boring, because there are many different ways to the top, for example the circular hiking trail. Through the autumnal deciduous forest it goes from Seefeld or Mösern to the "sky cinema". The Brunschkopf can also be walked on when the first snow falls.

To the Small and Large Maple Grounds

The Große and Kleine Ahornboden are already real natural jewels in summer – but even more so in autumn. The beauty of these places cannot be put into words, so I recommend everyone to see them once with their own eyes. The 2,000 maple trees at the Großer Ahornboden at an altitude of 1,200 meters are more than 500 years old and turn all kinds of colors in autumn: orange, yellow, green and red the old trees glow. This makes for breathtaking photo opportunities. In Eng, the oldest alpine village in Europe, you can stop for a break at the Eng Alm. A little smaller, but by no means less beautiful is the small Ahornboden.

To the Seefelder Joch and the Kaltwassersee lake

Whether with or without the support of the mountain railroad: A tour to the Seefelder Joch is worthwhile in autumn, because here the summit happiness is waiting for you. From the Seefelder Joch you have one of the best views over the whole region, the Inn Valley and far into the Karwendel. You can walk or bike to the Seefelder Joch, until the end of October you can still comfortably use the mountain railroad. On the way down or as a tour on its own, I recommend the Kaltwassersee. Embedded in the mountain landscape, the lake is a place of longing and on top of that a great photo motif.

Small hike through the Katzenloch near Leutasch

The Katzenloch from Leutasch is still quite an unknown hike – wrongly so. The nature here is really idyllic. With about 2 hours, the hike is not particularly long and equipped with a rain jacket, it can be done even in bad weather. Where the name comes from, by the way, is not known exactly, but it is assumed that Luxe, so "cats", were sighted there in the past.

Walk around the lake of Möser

Admittedly, it's too cold in autumn (at least for most people) to jump into the cool water. But a walk around Lake Möser in autumn is always beautiful. Sometimes the fog lies low over the water and the deciduous trees let their colorful leaves fall. If you want to extend the walk to a hike, you can continue from there to the Lottensee and the Wildmoosalm or up to the Brunschkopf.

Hike or bike tour to the source of the Isar near Scharnitz

The source of the Isar in the Karwendel Nature Park is very popular with bikers and hikers in summer. The imposing peaks and the turquoise Isar are impressive. If you bike through the Hinterautal in autumn, you can enjoy the colorful nature there almost to yourself. My tips for this tour: The path is easy, but still quite long, so it's best to do it by bike. Dress warmly in autumn, because it gets shady earlier in the valley. And look left and right of the path from time to time, because there are cranberries and all kinds of "Schwammerln" (mushrooms). You can do this tour until the first snow falls in the valley.

Hike through the autumn ghost gorge

My tip for families and adventure seekers: the Geisterklamm gorge near Leutasch is open until the end of October. With its rushing waters and exciting climbs, the gorge is one of the most beautiful in the Alps.

Alpine pastures and huts that are still open for a long time

Even if the summer is over, there are some huts and alpine pastures in the region that are still open longer. During a hike you can enjoy the autumnal landscape and strengthen yourself again with a stop. Which huts are open and when they have rest days, you can always check our list of huts. The following huts are open until the end of October: Binsalm, Bodenalm, Brunnsteinhütte, Eppzirler Alm, Gaistalalm, Leutascher Klammstüberl, Möserer Seestub'n, Hochegg Alm, Reitherjochalm and Rosshütte Panoramarestaurant, Tillfussalm, Wangalm and Wildmoosalm. Even longer – until the beginning of November – you can visit the Wettersteinhütte, the Ehrwalder Alm and the Tirolerhaus in autumn. The Enzian Hut near Reith is open continuously for you except for a break between 27.10. and 04.11.

The opening hours may vary slightly depending on the weather. If you have any questions about tour planning, our information offices will be happy to help you.
