Autumn at the Engel!

Our highlights for the season of many colours

Autumn is upon us here in the Eggen Valley! While the mornings are getting cooler, it is still summery and warm during the day; on the one hand we could pull on a pair of comfy socks and read a book, on the other hand we still want to conquer the mountain peaks… in fact it's the perfect combination of two seasons! Look closely and you will see the first red and yellow leaves on the trees and the silent harmony in the air that only autumn brings. At the Hotel Engel, we love it when summer gradually falls asleep and autumn step by step takes over the landscape. In short we all look forward to this colourful season! Why? There are so many reasons…
There's certainly no better season than autumn in which to relax in the Engel’s spa area. You can sip a fresh herbal tea, let your thoughts drift and look outside, at the trees as they change colour, with the gentle breeze blowing through them... and if you wish, head outside to the Infinity pool, jump in or perhaps just sit in the jacuzzi as you admire, as from indoors, the many-hued mountain landscape.
What could be more autumnal than time spent with Mother Nature?! The sun’s rays will make your skin tingle, there are walks through the ever-varying tones of the woods around the Rosengarten area, you can collect colourful leaves or chestnuts in the Karer forest - or just head for the summits, always with the prospect of being able to gather autumn memories for your travel album. Of course, a visit to a mountain hut is a must, where you can savour a hot chocolate or a refreshing beer - both are just right for autumn!

In between
Then you come back to the Hotel Engel, where autumn awaits for you to savour in all its culinary glory. We, the Kohler family, always look forward to the convivial get-togethers with our guests for the traditional “törggelen” at the Engel, which will take place this year for the 14th time. With live music – or “Hopfenmusig” as it is known - and draught beer served in the garden! Also on the menu are of course sauerkraut, dumplings, smoked meat and the elegant “queen of the season”, the chestnut. Not to mention wine – the term “törggelen” originally meant the practice of tasting the fresh grape juice.

And finally…
Yes, a final word: an autumn visit to us at the Hotel Engel is an experience that certainly won’t be forgotten in a hurry. With the magical adventures of the great outdoors, the delicious traditional and gourmet cuisine and - the icing on the holiday cake - the luxury of absolute relaxation, we can offer you an autumn break that would make the angels sing!
