The story of how we sent some Brits to Austria to take the perfect selfie
When you spend your summer holiday in Austria, you will experience that one moment – the moment that you’ll remember for years to come, the moment you’ll return to in your head when life gets stressful.
It could happen in the midst of an Alpine meadow, surrounded by blossoming flowers and children’s laughter; or at the steepest point during an exhilarating mountain bike ride down a mountain; or as you explore the centuries-old, awe-inspiring centre of an Austrian city.
Because that‘s the thing – the moment is different for everyone. Which is why, this summer, we decided to give you all the tools to make Austria yours. From immersing yourself in imperial splendour on a city trip to climbing Alpine summits to lazy summer days at a deep blue lake, just take a look at our sample itineraries – and then pick, choose and add activities to make them yours:
Innsbruck is the place to go if you want to combine your city trip with experiencing unspoilt Alpine nature.
A playground for families, a cosy small town with all the amenities of a city, a spot surrounded by stunning Alpine landscapes.
Leave the crowds behind and find unspoilt nature in Wildschönau in Tirol.
A foodie’s paradise, a relaxed city with a Mediterranean vibe, a cultural hot spot.
Virtually endless walking and hiking options, mountainbike adventures, and a taste of James Bond to top it off.
Tiroler Zugspitz Arena has got it all: dramatic Alpine peaks and relaxed family offerings.
Alpbachtal might be the place you’ve been dreaming about your entire life.
A place for families to be active together, let loose together – and indulge together.
A city of music and culture, but also of quiet moments in nature.
From lake to glacier, from paddle boarding to climbing your first 3,000 m peak, from yoga to yodelling.
Here, you can be who you want to be: a summiteer, a mountain biker, or a family adventurer.
A place to encounter age-old traditions, a place to see extraordinary innovation.
Where cosmopolitan summer holidays and breath-taking natural surroundings meet.
A drive up Austria’s highest mountain includes family hiking, visiting a glacier and breath-taking Alpine landscapes.
