Autumn comes when the weather changes so a late summer and it will be delayed. Early cold weather and it can advance. Generally autumn is after the third week in September. Fares go down as kids go back to school and people go to work and not so many crowds at anywhere worth visiting.
Rain happens and even the weather men have trouble predicting just one week ahead. Of course, weather can be cold to very cold at that time of year. Especially if you come from a hot country.
There are a number of companies online which do autumn tours of Europe.
Meanwhile, some pictures:
