Holidays along Austria's Rivers & Lakes

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.
