1. Almabtrieb and Bauernfests (Harvest Festivals)

The most enjoyable event of the autumn, the Almabtrieb! A festive occasion where the Alpine cows are warmly welcomed back to the stables from the high Alps. Decorated cows, lively markets, and indulging in local Austrian treats. An annual Austrian tradition that you must experience!

2. Hochkönig 'Wildwochen' (Wild Weeks)

From mid-September to mid-October, the Hochkönig region is dedicated to wild game hunting. During these weeks, various culinary specialties from regional game are offered. You can join guided hikes with experts and professional hunters. The highlight of this period is the 'Die lange Tafel am Berg' (The Long Table on the Mountain), a 6-course dinner focusing on regional dishes, local herbs, and a wine tasting under the stars on top of the mountain. A more romantic setting is hard to imagine! And to top it off, enjoy a panoramic view over the Steinbockalm.

5. Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave

Another attraction that shouldn't be missing from this list is a visit to the Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave. This ice cave can be visited from May to October. The impressive cave was discovered in 1879 and can be reached by cable car. Don't forget to wear sturdy shoes and warm clothing! Even though the Indian Summer is in full swing, the temperature in the ice cave will naturally be below freezing.


Enjoy an affordable late summer with regional summer cards

With certain vacation rentals in various regions, a summer card is included in your booking. These cards are valid until the end of October, meaning you can enjoy many activities for free or at attractive discounts during your late summer vacation. View chalets with summer cards.
