Austria, the perfect holiday destination both in summer and winter! In winter the snow covers the roof of your cottage and in summer the cottages are surrounded by beautiful green mountain pastures. Many holiday cottages in Austria are typically surrounded by lots of space, which is ideal for families with children.
Austria offers holidaymakers beautiful landscapes, with pastures, woods, lakes, interchanged with mountains and glaciers. There are wonderful walking routes everywhere. Take your bicycle on holiday, because you can make amazing trips, along the 'Danube route' for instance, a cycle route along the banks of the Danube. If you want to get a taste of history, you really must visit Vienna. See the Schloss Schönbrunn, Palace Hofburg, the Spanish riding school, the Prater or an Opera!
Austria is of course also known for its perfect skiing and cosy après-skiing. It's a very popular winter sport region. Besides the Austrian 'gemütlichkeit' (hospitality) this country offers numerous possibilities, "something for everybody": huge ski-resorts meeting all requirements and authentic mountain villages. Ski- and snowboard fanatics will find huge ski areas, all connected, whilst for non skiers there is also plenty to do: sleigh rides, snow shoe treks and beautiful walks through the wonderful scenery. The holiday homes are varied too: from cosy wooden chalets to luxurious apartments in resorts.
