Spring Holidays in Austria

Austria might not be at the top of everyone's 'must-see' list, but it certainly should be. There's so much more to this beautiful place than Julie Andrews singing on the mountainside: yes, there's Schnitzel, Strudel and Schnapps, but spectacular historical sites and wondrous scenery too. The Alpine region of Tirol is ideal for spring holidays in Austria's countryside: it's dotted with tranquil villages upon a backdrop of magnificent mountains. Vienna, meanwhile, is the historical capital of the country, and altogether a much grander and more elaborate affair. From some of the world's greatest art galleries to enormous, ornate palaces, Vienna is in many ways a fairytale destination. Whether you fancy a break in the city or a retreat in the countryside, you won't be disappointed with Austria. You could book a chalet in Salzburg or an apartment in Tirol, and you'll have equally unique and exciting experiences. Book your accommodation through HomeAway, and your holiday's even better: with hundreds of holiday rentals in Austria's best destinations, you're sure to find the perfect property for you, your family and friends.

  • Carinthia

    Carinthia is Austria's most southerly state, home to vast wine regions and magnificent, rural scenery. Whilst skiing is popular in the winter and early spring, it's by no means a destination purely for winter sports. Enjoy hiking and climbing in the Nockberge National Park, or travelling around Klagnefurt's attractions: there are dozens of historical castles and churches, as well as museums and theme parks!

  • Salzburg

    Salzburg is possibly the country's most quintessentially Austrian destination. Birthplace of Mozart and setting for the Sound of Music, it's a postcard-perfect place complete with snow-capped mountains and vast, green plains. Enjoy Schnapps and Strudel in Salzburg city, or go on an outdoor sports adventure at Hohe Tauern National Park: with Salzburg's excellent transport links, you can afford the best of both.

  • Tirol

    Tirol has long been a favourite with winter sports enthusiasts, but there's so much more to this area than simply snow! An ideal destination for spring holidays in Austria, it offers a natural haven in which to hike, climb, cycle or just relax. You can take a dip in one of the area's 40 sparkling lakes, visit the historical capital of Innsbruck, or enjoy some of the world's finest golf in Ötztal. Wherever you stay, you'll have a fantastic time.

  • Vorarlberg

    Vorarlberg lies in the west of Austria, and boasts some of Europe's most impressive landscapes. Bregenz near Lake Constance and the Rhine Valley is a particularly wonderful area, where you'll enjoy observing magnificent wildlife amidst the spoils of an Austrian spring. Skiing, hiking and bird-watching are ideal activities in the area, but take a trip to the city to truly immerse yourself in Vorarlberg culture.

  • Vienna

    Vienna is a culturally astounding capital, brimming with fascinating museums, elaborate architecture and vast boulevards. Take a spring holiday here, and you could visit the Hofburg and Belvedere Palaces by day, attend wonderful masked balls by night, and visit Prater Fun Fair and Minopolis Theme Park if travelling with the family. All in all, Vienna's a must-see destination, whether you choose to stay in the city or in the more tranquil outskirts.

  • Styria

    Styria is a central region of Austria, most famous for its excellent winter sports, but its stunning scenery and fascinating towns can be appreciated throughout the year. Spring is a great time to make the most of the lush, green countryside, when you can enjoy horse riding, hiking, and even white-water rafting. But why not try wine tasting in the beautiful South Styria Wine Lands? You could always make up for it with a stay in a Styrian Thermal Country spa.
