A holiday at Hotel Sommerhof in the autumn
Enjoy a fog-free autumn in the Gosau valley
Some still use the late summer for some time out in Salzkammergut, others come to hike and relax in the autumn holidays. In any case, autumn certainly has quite a bit to offer in the Inneres Salzkammergut.
An atmospheric autumn in the sunshine in Salzkammergut
During the day you still enjoy sunny, warm autumnal moments and observe the changes in nature while hiking: children in particular discover something new here time and time again. The mountain inns are also open until the end of September and know how to entice you with their autumn specialities. One strong argument is the clear weather in Gosau: whilst autumn brings fog to the lower regions, Gosau is situated above the fog line and spoils you with bright sunshine. Perfect for going on day trips in the idyllic outdoors or simply enjoying being.
Wellness time out in the spa or at Hotel Sommerhof
Besides numerous family excursion destinations, the spas are also enticing, particularly as the temperatures drop. You can spend a wonderfully relaxing time with the whole family at Grimming Therme in Bad Mitterndorf, at the Narzissenbad in Bad Aussee or at Eurotherme Bad Ischl. If you have less time, you can also enjoy your wellness time out at Hotel Sommerhof though where a heated pool, whirlpool, sauna, children's sauna, steam bath and massages await you.
Autumn customs in Gosau
The driving down of the cattle from the Moosalm is a fixed item on the autumn agenda every year. It takes place in Gosau 300 metres from Hotel Sommerhofnext to the lift's bottom station. While the decorated animals arrive in the town, you can find tasty food on the stalls and home-made wooden craftsmanship, for example the turned wooden bowls.
One special Gosau feature is also the sheep's day on the Iglmoosalm. The sheep that have returned from the mountain pasture are called out one after the other using their eartags so that they can be welcomed by their owners again. Spend a leisurely day on the Iglmoosalmwith musical entertainment and delicious alpine treats.
