Now that summer’s over, it’s time to start planning your fall travel—and as COVID subsides and the world reopens, Europe is calling. This summer, private jet demand in Europe soared when compared to pre-pandemic levels, with many turning to private aviation to avoid airline chaos. With the surging demand, Magellan Jets has introduced fixed rates and guaranteed availability on flights within Europe to our Jet Card program to help meet that increased volume. If you’re wondering where to go, here are our top 5 European fall private jet travel destinations.
BEST DESTINATIONS TO VISIT THIS AUTUMN IN EUROPE
Visit one of the most romantic cities in the world when it isn’t as crowded as in spring or summer. With the grape-harvesting season beginning in September, it’s the perfect time to visit a vineyard and taste the high-quality wines for which Tuscany is known. Florence offers pleasant weather throughout the fall, whether you’re taking a boat tour on the Arno or enjoying the city’s picturesque streets. Fans of opera rejoice—the theatres of Florence begin to reopen as summer comes to an end, giving tourists the perfect entertainment to enjoy.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Covered in vibrant foliage, Amsterdam has a reputation for being one of the most tree-rich cities in Europe, making it the perfect destination for a fall vacation. Travelers can enjoy the falling leaves throughout the city’s parks and historic canals. Cultural season is in full swing in the fall, with everything from Amsterdam Dance Event to the International Documentary Film Festival to the world’s largest cello festival taking place in autumn.
What could be better than walking along picturesque Lake Lugano in the fall? Even during autumn, the city of Lugano maintains a comfortable Mediterranean climate. The city’s three-day Autumn Festival showcases local cuisine and celebrates the harvest, while visitors can take advantage of local shops’ special extended opening hours. Take in the foliage in the nearby Malcantone region, where the so-called “Trail of Marvels” winds through mountains, rivers, valleys, and forests dotted with historic mills, chapels, and ruins.
The Bordeaux countryside offers more than just wine tours and tastings, with vivid bursts of red and yellow. In fall, the city still boasts warm days and cool nights, so Bordeaux Magazine recommends taking advantage of the alfresco dining culture. Okay, if it’s really wine you’re after, try Winerist Magazine’s suggestions for a budding sommelier’s ideal autumn itinerary in Bordeaux, or visit La Cité du Vin, the museum of wine.
The highlight of fall in Munich is Oktoberfest, the annual festival full of beer and bratwurst, back open after a two-year COVID hiatus. Skip the hustle and bustle and enjoy the city’s fantastic fall scenery. There’s no better place to enjoy the city’s foliage than in Munich’s English Garden, one of the world’s largest inner-city parks—it’s even larger than New York City’s Central Park. Heading south, take in the views of Karwendel Nature Park or visit the famed Neuschwanstein Castle when it is ringed by vibrant color.
