Fiery red forests at Feuerberg
Vibrant colors, soft light. Earthy notes blend into the still strong scent of the alpine meadows, late blooms delight the eyes and the heart. "Indian Summer" on Gerlitzen Alpe. We relax in a deck chair, in the spacious outdoor area, soaking in the light, warmth, and love. Not just for winter. Autumn is the best time for ceremonial sauna sessions but also a time for inward-looking offerings: "Spirit on the Mountain" with monks, philosophers, poets, Zen and yoga masters. And for our original Japanese tea ceremony. A highlight in autumn: The Festival of Chefs. Above the Mountain Resort, there is a charming calmness during autumn. Couples enjoy the rare intimacy. Only around the holidays at the end of October and beginning of November, there is bustling activity on our alpine meadows. Children are on school break, and for the first time after the summer holidays, it's "Family Time at Feuerberg." Later, it becomes quieter and more contemplative.
"The autumn is for couples and those seeking tranquility; there are only a few children in the house. With one exception: during the autumn holiday week at the end of October, many families come, and it becomes lively. During this time, the childcare hours are extended again, and a full program of leisure activities for children and teenagers is offered."
Guests of all ages can also engage in sports activities indoors. In the sports and climbing hall or in the bright, newly designed fitness room with a panoramic view
Every year in November, we invite you to a special event: the Festival of Chefs. Since 2010, highly acclaimed chefs from the Alpe-Adria region join us on Gerlitzen Alpe. Together with the kitchen team of the Mountain Resort, they create exquisite dishes for our guests.
In addition, we bring together outstanding producers of culinary delights. Cheesemakers, truffle hunters, delicacies manufacturers, top-class winemakers. Every day is a gastronomic extravaganza! Over the years, the Festival has become the culinary highlight of the Feuerberg year.
White splendor, already in autumn? That can happen at 1,769 meters above sea level. Rarely in September, but more likely in October and November. Just a moment ago, it was still summer, and suddenly the mountain is all white. No problem - on the contrary.
Because from hikes, you can easily transition to snowshoe tours, and the equipment for that is available - free of charge for our guests - at the resort. Sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing should be in your luggage anyway during autumn. And: As quickly as the snow arrives, it's almost always gone again - in autumn. Suddenly, it's pleasantly warm again on our alpine meadows.
