The term ´Altweibersommer´(Indian summer or gossamer) describes a period of time in September when the weather is consistently good. The term originates from Germanic mythology and refers to the gossamer which the young money spiders use to abseil down. The spinning of the webs is called ‘weiben‘ in old German. These spider webs can be seen on exceptionally warm and sunny days in autumn. According to popular belief, if the gossamer gets caught in a young woman’s hair then a wedding is not far. That’s why in South Tyrol the ‘Altweibersommer´ is also known as maidens‘ or women‘s summer.
