South Tyrol in autumn – Colour charm in Pusteria Valley
In autumn the Pusteria Valley will welcome you with colourful fireworks. The trees change colour and create a fascinating game of colours on the high plateau in Falzes. In the mixed woods the range of colours goes from brick red to honey yellow. The dark green of spruces and firs provides deep contrasts in the alpine landscape. The bright limestone Dolomites peaks stand in the clear sky and create an amazing background for an eventful autumn trip to South Tyrol. The air on the South alpine slopes is still pleasant and mild and invites to make an excursion.
