Arrive together. In Austria.
Life is a journey full of experiences, small and large adventures. We do, check off, schedule, plan, organize. And most of the time we are in too much of a hurry and too little time for each other. Leave the hectic pace of everyday life behind, feel life and enjoy together. Spending time with the kids and becoming a child again. Nowhere is the longing for family time fulfilled better than on a relaxed holiday with nature experiences. Austria's nature is familiar and yet always new.
Leave the world behind for a moment
With mountains, lakes and forests, villages in rural regions, with primeval traditions and the preservation of customs over generations - in Austria there are many places and experiences to arrive together. For example, families with smaller children feel at home in the Tyrolean Alpbachtal Seenland. Here you will find favorite places on the mountain like the Lauserland at 1.850 meters above sea level, a forest playground that becomes a discovery zone. In the valley, the smallest town in Austria surprises: the glass-blowing town of Rattenberg.
In the Tyrolean holiday region of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, on the other hand, clever little heads can solve puzzles on the sunny high plateau: children's book author Thomas Brezina has designed several tricky research paths for this purpose. In St. Johann in Salzburg there is also family time in summer with herb hikes, yoga or on a fabulous Geisterberg.
Adventure and relaxation
At the Achensee, not far from the Bavarian-Tyrolian border, adventurers get their money's worth. During the holiday program for active kids and teens, forest huts are built, rocks are climbed or rivers are made unsafe with tubing. Water fun is not only part of a family holiday here at the “Sea of the Tyroleans”.
The epitome of summer resorts in Austria is the Salzkammergut in Upper Austria, where you can wonderfully unwind at Lake Wolfgang. This works just as well in Burgenland. Leisurely cycle routes connect thermal baths, gentle vineyards and Lake Neusiedl with its national park in a fascinating steppe landscape.
Feel like home
Discovering new things together, laughing and arriving a little more every day: That is family holidays in Austria. Hosts with a heart like the Westreichers in the ****Family Hotel Furgler in Serfaus ensure that young and old are completely satisfied on holiday. The Landal Alpenparks in Vorarlberg, Carinthia and in the Salzburger Land also offer ideal accommodation for a family holiday in the mountains. And in the Naturel Hoteldorf Schönleitn above the Carinthian Faaker See, comfortably renovated farmhouses that are up to 400 years old will enchant you.
To ensure that everyone's vacation can start relaxed, Deutsche Bahn offers a number of direct connections to Austria and special conditions for families - for example, children and grandchildren under the age of 15 can travel free of charge. Regional transport, bike rental and hiking buses ensure mobility on site. With the guest cards, which are distributed by many accommodations, they are usually free of charge.
Being able to be human again
Arrive together - and still everyone at their own pace and according to their own feelings. This works particularly well in nature and in the country, because it is a very special way of life that people live here. This alpine attitude towards life is more than just living in and with the mountains, it is also their serenity that the people here have retained.
And the best part: this philosophy of life is contagious! At least for everyone who gets involved.
