Autumn Brings Beauty to these Must Visit European Destinations

Europe is a beautiful place to visit at any time of the year, but certain months are absolutely breathtaking in some of the cities in that area of the world.  As an added bonus, travelers won’t experience as many crowds when they choose to visit during the cooler months of autumn.  The reason for that is no one has realized just how amazing these destinations really are!

Here are the must visit European destinations that autumn brings beauty to:

Germany is well known for its Oktoberfests that are held in autumn, but there is so much more to do and see while in Bavaria at that time.  Visitors can attend any of the numerous wine festivals or simply sample the wine at a local winery.  Everyone will love catching a glimpse of snow flakes settling on the top of the Alps as they hike along the trails.  Travelers will also want to stop at some of the castles, as they can get a history lesson amongst the changing colors of the leaves on the trees.

Wicklow, Ireland

WIcklow is stunning at any time of the year, but it is during the autumn months that the waterfalls begin to flow underneath the blue skies.  Visitors can hike along any of the trails and find that most of them will lead to at least one rushing waterfall, if not more.  This is also an excellent time to explore all the historical sites, but if a traveler needs to choose just one, they need to venture over to Glendalough.

Annual festivals are held throughout Budapest during the autumn months, which is perfect for those travelers who want a sample of the local life.  The cooler temperatures are welcomed by those who love wandering the streets of the city, as they look for cozy cafés and historical attractions.  A few people may want to venture to the nearby regions when they are in the area, as this time of the year brings the harvesting and productions of wines.

Transylvania, Romania

There are many legends to be discovered while in Transylvania and people will find that the autumn is the best time of the year to be there.  The Fagaras Mountains are the place to be in this area during the autumn, because the massive peaks are full of brilliant colors and sweeping views. Everyone is encouraged to drive along the fifty-six miles of roads that lead through these mountains, as they stop at medieval castles and try to see if they can find the truth of the legends from years past.

Anyone who is planning on traveling this autumn will want to consider these must visit destinations, as they offer the best views and adventures for this time of the year.  Of course, there are other areas of the world that are just as fantastic, but they may not have the extraordinary beauty that these destinations do.
