Lakes & Nature

Austria's natural waters are a great starting point to plan your vacation. Make it a round trip, taking in one idyllic lakeside village after another. Commit to a bike tour along the Danube, leading through urban hubs and crisp wine regions. Or enjoy a multi-day hike, stopping for a refreshing dip whenever you fancy.
