Who doesn't dream of walking through alpine meadows full of wildflowers, following trails up to some of Europe's highest peaks, and enjoying breathtaking panoramas of the Alps? Austria has a long history as a walking holiday destination, some even say the tradition originated here, with climbing the Alpine peaks such as the Grossglockner, starting already in 1800.
With such a long experience of hospitality you can expect the very best during a holiday in Austria. The network of well-maintained trails and paths is immense, and in many areas there are also themed trails where you can learn about local flora and other wildlife, or the geological history of the area. Cable cars and gondolas bring you to high-level walks in a short period of time, making alpine meadow walks and stunning panoramas accessible for all. And of course Austria also has a rich cultural heritage, there are so many scenic towns and settlements to explore, you could probably spend a lifetime walking there and not get bored!

There are both guided and self-guided walking holidays in Austria, and many of the companies also offer both options, so that you can explore Austria independently, but also join some guided walks.
