Excursions and insider tips for your summer holiday in austria
Get to know the entire variety
Whether close by or just a day trip away: summer holidays in Austria and Salzburg provide countless attractions which are always worth a visit. Take your family and off you go! You can choose from various categories, just as you like. Summer holidays in Austria do not only stand for hiking and sports, but also for nature, culture, and tradition.
… the harder - or let's say the nicer - it is to choose. How about a riddle-filled adventure hike on the Mountain Kodok, right next to our hotel in Hinterglemm? Or a spontaneous day trip to the picturesque capital Salzburg? Of course, we also have animals on our farm, but the Salzburg Zoo or the Ferleiten Wildlife Park are other dimensions. Usually, nature is on top of the priority list for summer holiday in Austria. And if you love nature, don't miss out on its marvels such as the giant ice cave Werfen or the Krimml Waterfalls. If the weather doesn't show its sunny face, destinations such as the Mittersill National Park Centre step in.
