Walking in Austria

Wild flower-strewn meadows, untamed waterfalls, and long sunny days in the mountains... If you think that Austria is only a winter destination, you're mistaken.

Austria comes to life in summer. When liberated from its winter blanket of snow, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more invigorating landscape: all lush Alpine valleys, sky-grazing mountains and endless blue skies. It doesn't get much more dramatic than this.

To really get to the heart of summertime Austria, all you need is two feet and a sense of adventure. Choose one of the countless hiking trails that criss-cross this rich and varied land – you'll discover sky-high viewpoints, magical valleys and cosy alpine retreats. Wherever you venture, you can be sure of a warm welcome – and an utterly breathtaking view.
