Things to do

-Nature: Austria is famous for its divine mountain scenery with lofty snow-capped peaks piercing into layers of clouds. The Central Eastern Alps, Northern Limestone Alps and Southern Limestone Alps are all at least partially found within Austria. These mighty mountains descend into beautiful green valleys. Summer visitors will have all this splendour at their disposal to hike in or bike around. The cycle routes in this country are renowned for the magnificent scenery cyclists are treated to along the way.

-Winter sports: A good number of the tourists who flock ski accommodation in Austria in winter are there to take advantage of the delicious Alpine slopes found there. Between December and March people from all over Europe and beyond arrive to ski and snowboard to their heart’s delight. Those into cross-country skiing will also have kilometres of excellent terrain to indulge. Some holidaymakers however are simply there for the après-ski fun, and who can blame them.

-Cultural events: Austria and opera are inseparable and most visitors come to this patch of mountainous land in the heart of Europe to hear the amazing performances belted out in halls in Salzburg and Vienna. During the Salzburg festival held every summer visitors can have their fill of classical music while rubbing shoulders with enthusiasts from around the world. For traditional accordion-driven folk music one can visit countryside pubs.

-Monuments: Among the fascinating ancient buildings that speak of Austria’s illustrious past, the Burg Riegersberg is one of the best preserved. It is open to the public though it is owned by the ruling family in Liechtenstein. Hofburg Innsbruk is another of the country’s most important historical buildings. It was occupied by elite members of Austrian society such as the Empress Maria Theresa.

-Museums: Art lovers will be well taken care of and should not hesitate to book their Austria ski accommodation. Along the Walk of Modern Art they will get feast their eyes on contemporary artworks by leading artists displayed outdoors.

Weather in Austria

The climate in this country, thanks to its altitude, can be described as cool and temperate. With most of the country being in the Alps, the climate is also described as alpine. Winters are therefore unsurprisingly cold with temperatures ranging between -10 and 0°C. Daylight hours can be as little as two in a day at this time of year. But that doesn’t mean the summers don’t get hot. Between July and August temperatures averages of 26°C are usually observed and on the odd day temperatures climb beyond 30°C.

Travel to Austria

Though holidaymakers can jet in through any one of the country’s six airports, most of them end up jetting in through the Vienna Airport, Austria’s biggest and busiest. Tourists heading to Austria ski accommodation could also use the Salzburg Airport, the second busiest after Vienna. Those coming from Eastern Europe could come in by bus and those coming from the Czech Republic, Hungary or Germany can use fast trains.

                                                              Perfekt gelegen (in U-Bahn Nähe), sehr ansprechendes Design, bestens ausgestattet, sehr sauber (so wie es sein soll), ideal für 2 Personen, Schlafzimmer trotz Citylage ruhig (zum Innenhof gelegen), reibungslose Buchung / Abwicklung (schnell, sympathisch, immer erreichbar) Sehr gerne empfehlen wir diese Unterkunft weiter. Danke Helena! Kleiner Tipp: Für die Regale im Badezimmer eine komplett geschlossene Lösung (statt der leider zu schmalen Vorhänge ) finden :) Die 3 Wilden

                                                              Great apartment for a large group

                                                              Very comfortable and nicely fitted apartment, great location. Plenty of room for our large family group to sit and chat or eat together, but real luxury not to fight over bathrooms! Close to Ubahn but walking distance to inner city as well.

                                                              Lovely apartment

                                                              Once you get upstairs (i.e. don't let the communal entrance put you off!) this apartment is really excellent. The main room is very spacious, bright and airy yet was easy to heat with the efficient central heating system. The double bedroom has no view but the window provided natural light and ventilation. The double bed and fold out bed were both very comfortable. Lovely shower room and separate toilet. The kitchen area was very functional (no cooker) - microwave and hotplate for cooking purposes. The apartment was exactly as described - very modern, clean and bright. The wifi and technical equipment was an added bonus. Convenient to the tube station, food stores and pleasant eateries - all 1-2 minutes away. Really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Would definitely stay here again.
