Austria: Family Holiday
Keeping the whole family entertained while on holiday in Austria is no problem at all. Whatever time of year you are planning to visit, there is always an activity to satisfy every member of the family, even it that's just relaxing by a stunning lake in the heart of the Austrian countryside. A family holiday in Austria will tire you out for all the right reasons; with an abundance of fresh mountain air, sporting activities, and hearty food, a holiday in Austria is as healthy as it is fun. There are a number of Austrian resorts with hotels that cater for families, many of them with professionally trained, English-speaking childminders.
Winter activities for the family include skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and ice-skating. You can always bundle the kids off to ski school during the day where they can learn all the basics while you take on the larger slopes or relax with a hot chocolate. Bike riding holidays in Austria make excellent family breaks in the summer; plan your route in advance and stop off at picturesque mountain villages where you can find traditional Austrian guesthouses for overnight accommodation. The only drawback with an activities holiday for the whole family is that it can be a little more expensive than your usual 'sun, beach, swimming pool' holiday. One good way to keep costs low is to book a hotel that includes meals and activities within your accommodation fee.
