Destination Information for Austria
Ideal for skiing in the winter and a hiker’s paradise in summer, Austria is transformed with each season but still attracts tourists from far and wide. Along with neighbouring Switzerland, it is the winter sports capital of Europe and famous resorts such as Kitzbühel are a skier’s dream. And once revellers are finished on the slopes there is more fun to be had, as the array of bars and restaurants available have given après-ski in Austria an unrivalled reputation.
In the summer months, Grossglockner Alpine Road is opened and leads up to the Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe Visitor Centre. This fabulous viewpoint is where visitors can look out upon the majesty of the Grossglockner– Austria’s highest mountain. Elsewhere, in the capital city of Vienna, the grandeur of Schönbrunn Palace is a highly regarded tourist attraction. In the Palace Park additional activities are on offer, including visiting the world’s oldest zoo.
