Find the Best Place to Travel in September

As summer fades into fall in Europe, the crowds disperse and the summer frenzy lightens, revealing an ambience that is at once charming and peaceful. If you’re looking for the best place to travel in September, immerse yourself in the Old-World charm of Europe with these elegant September travel destinations.

In Switzerland, the crisp fall air brings out the vibrant colours of the surrounding mountains and forests, making it one of the best places to go in September for hikers and nature enthusiasts. Malta, on the other hand, is a sun-kissed island with charming streets, ancient temples, and crystal-clear waters where Mediterranean warmth lingers well into September. For a combination of culture and coastline, Croatia proves to be one of the best destinations in September with gorgeous cities of antiquity and the stunning Adriatic Sea.


If you’re considering when to travel to Switzerland, look no further than the style of a Swiss September. Try farm-to-table dining in the golden vineyards of Lavaux, ascend the Stanserhorn in a unique open-air cable car, and hear the characteristic ringing of Swiss cows descending to graze in lower pastures.
