Visit Austria for your next Holiday





Are you looking for an exciting and beautiful country to visit for your next holiday? If so, you might like to consider the European country of Austria, which has something to appeal to everyone. Here are a few reasons why.

Good transport links
Okay, so transport might not be the key deciding factor in your choice of holiday destination but it’s certainly an important consideration as you need to know you’ll be able to easily get around once you get to the country. The good news is that if you go to Austria, you shouldn’t have any problems. The train service is excellent and a popular way to get around the country – there is also a range of train discount passes available for purchase, which can help save you money.

Driving is also a good option. You’ll need to get a toll sticker for your windscreen if you’re driving on the motorway and ensure you’ve got snow tyres or snow chains in the winter, but the roads are well-maintained and offer good variety.

Good accommodation options
As you might expect from a country where tourism is such a major industry, there is all sorts of accommodation available in Austria. From rustic Austrian Zimmers to glamorous Viennese hotels, you’re sure to find something that’s suitable for every taste and budget no matter which region you choose to visit.

Good climate
Austria also benefits from having a good climate. It’s worth mentioning that it can rain at any time of the year so waterproofs are advised, but the country is on the whole fairly temperate. If you’re after skiing or a nice winter break, the Alps are a good place to go. For hot summer holidays, the eastern part of the country could well be what you’re looking for.

Good selection of attractions
One of the main reasons to consider going to Austria is the fact that there is just so much to do there. From going to see the opera in Vienna to visiting the last protected stretch of rainforest in Europe, it’s a diverse and exciting country. Salzburg is a must-see, as this is home to Mozart’s birthplace and is very close to a valley where you will find ice caves. Another benefit is that Austria has very good links to the rest of Europe, so it’s a great place to go if you’re hoping to go on a wider European tour and take in as many sights as possible.
