When you think of Austria, you think of white mountains and winter sports areas. However, Austria has a lot more to offer than that! It is the country of Wienerschnitzels, apple strudels and Viennese coffees.
Austria is a very versatile country, from rugged mountains and hills to rivers and mountain lakes. Take a hike in one of the 48 nature parks, they are all unique and invite you to relax completely. Enjoy the quiet rushing brooks and the silence in the woods.
For the sports enthusiasts, there are options such as rafting, kayaking and canyoning or cool off by bathing in one of the rivers. You can even take care of your own meal as there are countless fishing opportunities due to the many lakes and rivers.
If you are looking for diversity during the summer holidays and something different than sun, sea and beach, then book your holiday to Austria!
