Indian Summer in the Alps - meet the Gold-Bergs

Meet the GOLD-BERGS our Autumn Holiday line-up of Alpine Hotels dressed in amber tones of the Indian Summer - that's Fall -  from Italy, Austria, Germany and Switzerland – the scene is indeed magical marking the start of the wonderful Alpine Indian Summer – a seasonal window of 3 months bathed in soft sunlight.

The Alpine Indian Summer is all about a sea of gold that throws itself against the contrast of lush, hardy pine & fir trees, these soar through the canopy of yellow and ember browns from the South Tyrol to Tegernsee in Bavaria. This is when the cows return from the high meadows to the villages suitably attired in flowers, and the bountiful harvests of grapes, apples and chestnuts punctuate the mountain air.

Check out one of our 18 hotels in the Alps featuring classic destinations like Zermatt, Lech Am Arlberg, Lake Lucerne to the more off radar Alpine enclaves like Saanen-Gstaad or stunning Vals and Bad Gastein.  Catch the last glimpse of pastures bare between now and early November and snap up some late days of the Alpine Indian Summer. Fall into the Alps this Autumn – why is Autumn the only season to have two names – but who really cares, this natural theatre could have dozens.
