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.

Katherina was very helpful and located in a shop a few doors away from the apartment. We used the facilties to cook a meal and found everything we needed. I did not realise that the washing machine was also a dryer and requested an airer. Organised by Katherina without question. A very homely place to return to after a day of site seeing. Would definately return.

From the beautiful flowers in the window boxes to the quaint hearts hanging in the rooms, not only is this a rental home but a precious piece of Tyrolean home life. Karl, the owner, first introduced himself within minutes of our booking, just to confirm he was a real person owning a real property. This really put our minds at rest. Then from advice about specialist diet foods to buying a new DVD player within 24 hours of reporting problems with the existing machine, Karl and his mum could not have done more to make our stay a comfortable one. The housekeeper also visited several times during the two weeks to ensure we had found everything we needed. The bathrooms and kitchen were spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Essentials such as dishwasher tablets, washing powder, liquid soap and so on were all provided but the equipment in the kitchen was second to none. We often struggle when making meals in rentals but not here. Storage space is no problem in the kitchen, bathrooms or bedrooms as there are cupboards galore. It's unfortunate that out of 14 days at the chalet, we had torrential and continual rain for the best part of 9 days. However, the house is very well equipped with books, games and a 1000 piece jigsaw. Within less than a 5 minute drive is the delightful town of St. Johann with gorgeous cake shops and bakeries, a great choice of supermarkets and pretty town square. Kitzbuhel is a 15 minute drive and has free parking opposite the sports centre and we also had delightful days in Innsbruck, Salzburg, Rattenburg and Kufstein-all within a 75 minute drive from the house. Driving is exceptionally easy in Austria and there's lots of outdoor parking space at the chalet. I loved playing out Austrian home life and even made friends with a non English speaking elderly neighbour. Thank you to Karl for "lending" us his home.

Spotlessly clean had everything we needed and is set in a beautiful area. We would recommend this holiday home as it's quite, lovely views and peaceful but within easy reach of things to see and do.
