Holiday home vacation in Austria
In Austria atraveo offers a selection of more than 8,500 holiday houses and apartments. Most of those are situated in the Austrian Alps in the federal states Tyrol, Carinthia, Vorarlberg, Styria and Salzburger Land. But you can also find a considerable selection of holiday apartments and houses on atraveo in the more “flatter” regions such as Upper Austria and Burgenland. The range of properties is impressive: From the secluded mountain lodge to the luxury holiday home with all possible amenities and from the small two-person apartments up to spacious houses which are also suitable for large parties – every wish should be fulfilled regarding your personal dream domicile.
Active nature experience in Austria
The Austrian alpine world with its mountains and valleys offers multiple possibilities for an active holiday. Hiking, mountain biking, climbing or extreme sports such as raging white water rafting or paragliding can be enjoyed. However the stunning alpine mountains invite also to quiet and relaxing nature enjoyment. What about a holiday home in the National Park Hohe Tauern which extends over the federal states Tyrol und Salzburger Land or the many picturesque valleys such as Zillertal, Ötztal or Montafon?
Explore Austria’s cities
Another highlight are Austria’s cities: The renowned capital Vienna, the historic centre of classical music not only impresses with its sights such as St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Schönbrunn Palace or the Prater but also the famous coffee houses and of course the celebrated opera houses and theatres. Salzburg, the city of Mozart, is especially known for its Salzburg Festival and the delicious Mozart balls. In 2003 the city Graz was the European Capital of Culture which was followed by the Upper Austrian city Linz in 2009. But the list does stop here not forgetting impressive cities such as Klagenfurt and Bregenz.
A true skiing paradise
Austria in winter is equally renowned as well as loved for its alpine slopes. Whether in Tyrol, Vorarlberg, Carinthia or in Salzburger Land – everywhere you can find larger and smaller skiing areas which provide not only classic downhill but also many cross-country ski-tracks and service facilities. In the evenings after an exciting day on the slopes après-ski is the next thing on the agenda. Alternatively you can spend a cosy evening in front of a crackling fire in your holiday home. Popular skiing regions for which you can find a large number of holiday apartments and houses on atraveo are amongst others Ski Amadé, Ski Zillertal or the Ötztalarena Sölden.
Easy way to travel to a holiday house
Travelling by car or train is the easiest option for going to Austria. Considering the very often congested motorways jammed with holidaymakers going to Austria and Italy during the summer period travelling by train is potentially a sensible alternative – as long as you can and want to travel without a car.
