10 of the Best Places to Visit Europe in the Fall

By Helena Sula | Posted to 

Traveling Europe in the fall often means less tourists, shorter queues, and plenty of beautiful autumn colors. Europe is full of crisp, cool temperature, orange, yellow, and red trees, and lots of pumpkins. There’s an abundance of fall foliage, “Neu Wine” (a sweeter wine just before it becomes actual wine!) and plenty of festivals. There are fewer crowds as the summer season has ended and school starts up again and the best part: you can snag a great deal on travel.

I’ve put together a list of 10 places to visit in Europe in the fall and some just might surprise you!

1. Hallstatt, Austria

One of the prettiest cities in the world is just outside of Salzburg (home of the Sound of Music), in Austria. Hallstatt sits on the edge of a pristine lake and is set with 16th century alpine homes complete with flower boxes in the windows. The church steeple makes a grand portrait along with a gorgeous town square. Typically, tourists often flood this pretty town. But you’ll find quieter streets in the fall months.

2. Ludwigsburg, Germany

Ludwigsburg is the king of all things pumpkin as they host the largest pumpkin festival in the world! You’ll also find gorgeous castles, beautiful fall foliage, and plenty of pumpkin flavored everything. Here’s my full guide to the festival and Ludwigsburg.
