Winter tourists can take advantage of the holiday homes conveniently located close to popular pistes.

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.

We were met on arrival by Denise's husband and he explained how things worked etc - he seemed very nice and helpful. Denise had been very helpful in the lead up to arrival with recommendations on what to do etc. We had a very pleasant stay and had everything we needed just like home from home. The apartment is very big and had everything you needed. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful city of Salzburg as there was so much for you to see and do and within walking distance. We especially loved the view from the Fortress - which made the walk up the steps very worthwhile. We went to several museums using the Salzburg card and as we planned everything carefully we got a lot more value from the card - we did the tour of the Fortress, boat cruise on the river, Mozarts birthplace, Hellbrunn Palace & water games & Salzburg Zoo (thus included the transport too) - all great places and very worthwhile to visit. We also did the Sound of Music tour and a horse and carriage ride - again this was great - made so much better by the great weather we had overall during our stay. The apartment is in a gated complex so you felt very safe, patio doors overlooking the gardens and very quiet building. We walked miles during our 5 night stay and it was lovely to return at the end of the day to the comforts of the apartment. Lots of restaurants near by, plus a Spar for any food you would like to buy or a Billa store in the Old Town. Would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to return again in the future.
