Autumn holidays on the apple plateau of Natz/Schabs
Autumn awaits you with colourful foliage and the apple plateau shines in fabulous colours. Golden yellow, bright red and soft brown shades dominate the deciduous and mixed forests. The dark green of the pine and fir trees creates fascinating contrasts in the holiday region. During your autumn holiday in South Tyrol, the temperatures are still mild and perfect for hiking and biking in the mountains. The wine harvest has already begun and the branches of fruit trees bend under the weight of ripe fruits. With the traditional Apple Festival, the second major event of the year in Natz/Schabs is imminent.
A merry highlight in the fall: The Apple Festival in Natz/Schabs
The apple harvest is at the centre of ceremonial activities on the apple plateau in the autumn. During the “Sunnseitn” Apple Week everything revolves around the delicious, sun-ripened apples. During your autumn vacation you may take part in these festivities. In the mountain inns and restaurants, the kitchen chefs create delicious dishes made with fresh apples. There are slide shows about the tradition of fruit growing in the region and the current Apple Queen will accompany individual groups on hikes in the mountains. The grand finale of the festivities is the election of a new Apple Queen.
