Get ready for an Austrian Summer

Travel features

What does Austria mean to you? If it’s all alpine skiing and cavorting nuns singing on mountains think again.

Yes, we’ve been to Salzburg, been on the Sound of Music tour and eaten Sacher Torte but we’d heard much about the Austrian countryside. So we’ve headed to Austria to take in the Austrian Summer. We’re talking vast valley views, fresh mountain air, outdoor pursuits and delicious traditional foods.

We’ve a busy week ahead exploring the Zillertal region, hiking, going on crystal encrusted steam trains and discovering the region’s fine food. Then we’ll be off to the Alpbachtal to enjoy the great outdoors and it’s dramatic scenery on a water walk (no, we’re not walking on water, but it will be almost as good!). Later in the week we head to Saalbach-Hinterglemm and Zell Am See where we’ll check out Peakworld 3000 among the regions’ other treasures.

You can keep up to date on our Austrian adventures on Facebook, Twitter (where we’ll be tweeting on the #AustrianSummer and #Austria hashtags), YouTube, Flickr and more.

We are partnering with the Austrian National Tourist Office for this trip, but as ever, you can be sure that all the opinions we bring you are our own. Seriously, have you ever heard of anyone being influenced by schnitzel before!?

  1. Hmm… we still haven’t had any schnitzel actually – that said the food we have had has been incredible. Maybe they’re trying us out on other things such as desserts, referred to on menus as “sweet temptations”!
