It's time to discover amazing Austria

Few countries manage to blend urban cool with natural splendor quite as effortlessly as Austria. Nestled amid the rugged Alpine terrain of Central Europe, it's the perfect place to enjoy everything from lively city breaks to once-in-a-lifetime outdoor adventures. Whether you plan to visit the palaces of Vienna, race across the snow-covered slopes of Solden or take in the views of the Eastern Alps from the fairytale-like city of Salzburg, you'll find Austria vacation rentals offer all the comforts of home amid some of the world's most dramatic and diverse landscapes.

Outdoor delights in idyllic Austria

Outdoor time is likely to be on the agenda and being in Austria means you can take your pick of pursuits. Warm summer days in the mountains are perfect for kayaking, horseback riding and scenic drives, while in winter, the backdrop transforms into an idyllic setting for tobogganing, snowboarding and skiing. Should that sound a little too energetic, there's always the option to stick to the Christmas markets and schnapps-tasting events that you'll find in an abundance on lower ground, while all year round, plush wellness centers and spas will leave you feeling on top of the world.

Experience Austria your way

Not everybody's boots are made for walking, but no-one need miss the experience of exploring Austria's magical mountains. Scenic gondola rides are a memorable way to get your fill of the landscape and are within easy reach of most Austria vacation rentals. Nowhere is this more true than in Innsbruck, where homes are on the doorstep of 20-minute cable car rides that soar 2,000 meters into the Nordkette. It's possible to ride further into the Karwendel Nature Park, though families often hop off early to enjoy a trip to the Alpine Zoo.

Seasonal appeal in Austria

While most of the mountain resorts are geared up for the outdoor pursuits of the summer and winter seasons, choosing an Austria vacation rental in an urban setting offers year-round attractions aplenty. The soaring temperatures that favor the cities during the summer months are ideal for those keen to soak up a little culture, perhaps joining the well-heeled travelers who flock to the Salzburg Festival, a 6-week extravaganza of operas, plays and concerts. During the cooler months, the enthusiasm of the Christmas market aficionados, who fill the streets of Vienna during the holidays, is wonderfully contagious.

Exploring Austria's diverse landscapes

Natural wonders are never too far away when you vacation in Austria, but the pace at which you enjoy the country's fantastically-diverse scenes is up to you. If clambering up mountains is not part of your plans, the delights of the Danube offer an easy way to get a look at the country's best bits. River cruises are popular in the region, though there's a lot to be said for road trips and bike rides, where you have the freedom to pause and savor a new-found favorite spot for just a little while longer.
