Fall colors

Hey all,

I'm planning on vacationing around Bavaria in mid-October and was wondering if that would be too late for fall colors. Will it be snowing by then? Or is it still "fall?" Thanks!

Bavaria is big and has many regions, climates and landscapes at different altitudes - depends where you go. At lower to medium altitudes mid October is perfect for fall colours. Only high up in the mountains there may already be a touch of winter.

One year it was around the middle of Oct and we had great weather one day and 6 inches of snow the next, hour south of Munich. We try going late Sept now, hit Oktoberfest and the fall foliage.

Hi,

We've been to Bavaria and Austria 7 times since 2001. 5 of those trips were in mid to late October. My opinion is it's the best time of year to visit. Yes, you may get fall colors (we have) and some very nice days. In our experiences we had very few days of rain over the course of 5 trips (approx. 50 days in Oct.) and usually mild days and chilly nights. Very much like here in the NY/NJ area.
