Ideally suited to the summer seasons, camping in Austria more or less guarantees you a clear blue mountain lake, the purest mountain air, and a friendly local tavern. Choose your campsite according the type of holiday you’re after; the stunning Tyrol region, for example, is famous for its glorious forests and lakes and offers many exciting outdoor activities. Or choose a location near one of Austria’s vibrant cities, such as Salzburg in the north east of the country. Whether you enjoy fishing, hiking, walking, or the more extreme sports such as mountain biking, paragliding and rafting, Austria’s campsites are generally well equipped and offer a good range of activities. A tent for two people for 7 nights will cost you from €250-300 – which may not sound especially cheap, but many boast ‘hotel standard’ facilities and do include some sporting activities.
