Austria: When to go

Austria When to go

Austria really is a year-round destination. The time you decide to visit really depends on the type of holiday you are looking for. If you’re travelling in the summer, Austria can’t offer you a beach holiday, but a lake holiday should not be overlooked. The lakes offer you all the tranquillity of lapping water in the shelter of a beautiful alpine skyline. Summer activities in Austria are also extremely appealing and include paragliding, rafting, mountain biking and hiking. The ski season between December and April attracts a huge number of visitors, with Austria offering you fantastic pistes and some great après-ski action. The traditional Christmas markets are also a big attraction and accommodation can get quite busy at this time of year. A city break in the spring or autumn comes with its own charms; the weather will be a little cooler and will make the perfect accompaniment for a cultured sightseeing trip. We are sure, therefore, whatever time of year you go, your holiday in Austria will be very enjoyable.
