Who hasn’t experienced it? The wonderfully refreshing sensation of diving into water on a hot summer’s day, gliding over the surface and feeling reinvigorated as you do so. Austria’s restorative waters can be discovered in many different ways, on a holiday alongside its rivers and lakes. There are various bathing lakes, with the guarantee of lasting well-being that originates in everything from relaxed paddling to countless possibilities for water-based sports and contemplative walks along the shores. Or the crystal-clear mountain streams, offering welcome refreshment to active explorers who are out and about. And then there are Austria’s rivers, which are amongst the cleanest in Europe, inviting visitors to bathe, fish or simply take a rest.
