Austria

Things to do - general

 

Whether you’re a skier perfecting your glides or a snowboarder looking to twist some turns in freshly fallen snow, you’ll find everything you need in abundance out and about the slopes of Austria. Come here for pristine pistes, top-of-the-notch resorts, world-class ski schools and optimal snow conditions, all amongst some of the most beautiful mountains and scenery in the world.
As the beauty of Austria’s mountainous landscape knows no bounds and with its abundance of high-quality ski resorts it can be difficult to know which destination to pick for your next holiday.

Snow is guaranteed

Austria

Austria’s Alps are blessed with a long and lavish snow season and the country is widely recognised as one of the world’s best snow-sure skiing destinations. The snow on the ground is generally powdery and fluffy well into spring, packed powder prevails on the groomed runs, and deep powder off-piste. All of Austria’s resorts have top-of-the-range snowmaking facilities, ensuring complete and utter satisfaction on perfectly groomed pistes all throughout the winter season. The high altitude of many of its mountains brings about ideal snowy conditions. In the Tirol alone there are 5 glaciers, such as the Hintertux glacier, which offers a whopping 365 days of skiing a year.

Austrian Gemütlichkeit & hospitality

The Austrian notion of Gemütlichkeit is hard to explain. So special and unique to this country, it embodies cosiness, comfort and homeliness and is a word that just can’t be translated. You’ll find lashings of this during your winter skiing adventure. Cosy rustic huts invite you to while away the hours nursing a hot spicy Glühwein or schnapps in front of a crackling log fire surrounded by friendly locals. The service excellence and hospitality that you encounter all over the country is guaranteed to leave you with a warm glow even in the cold winter weather. Most of Austria’s hotels and guest houses are family-run, guaranteeing a friendly and unique atmosphere.

Great value for money

Austria is well known for winning on the value-for-money stakes, with everything from basic holiday costs to lift passes, ski schools, eating out and partying costing less compared to other popular ski destinations. Not only will your holiday cost you less, but there will be so much more thrown in to boot (see our other 9 reasons for skiing in Austria). Savvy travellers can also find great deals in Austria’s ski regions

Holidays along Austria’s Rivers & Lakes

Austria

Austria’s natural waters are a great starting point to plan your break. Make it a round trip, taking in one idyllic lakeside village after the other. Commit to a bike tour along the Danube, leading through urban hubs and crisp wine regions. Or lose yourself (but not the way) on a multiday hike, stopping for a refreshing dip whenever you fancy.
