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:
