Summer in Alpine Pastures
One of our Terrific Tips

Relaxation and calm, between heaven and earth. A day of fresh air in the mountains. And, with plenty of time for unexpected discoveries, Austria is one summer holiday destination that you'd return to in a second.

Usually, you already hear the sounds of the cow-bells before the Alpine pasture comes into view. And once the lush green meadows emerge into view from behind the last of the trees, it’s like balm on the spirit of every tired walker. In the lodges, often heated by traditional wood-burning stoves, you can get home-made cheese and bacon almost everywhere. And should you choose to enjoy a picnic high up here, in the evening sun, you will have the sense that you can rarely be this close to heaven.
