Pretty alpine towns and some of Europe's best ski slopes
The Alps are Europe’s major mountain range and a considerable part of it lies in Austria. The region's heavy snowfalls provide excellent conditions for a range of winter sports. Austrian ski resorts tend to be traditional and pretty, in keeping with local heritage.
During the summer, warmer temperatures and sunshine enable visitors to enjoy local wildlife and many outdoor activities. Lakes, glaciers and remote villages provide a picturesque backdrop for holidaying in beautiful surroundings.
Mount Grossglockner is Austria’s highest peak and provides a 50km road to enjoy panoramic views during summer months when it is accessible.
