Luxury in Alps (Austrian): The Austrian way
The Austrian Alps, without a doubt one of the most dazzling areas in Europe. Astoundingly attractive in the winter season, the Alps are a sanctuary for winter sports enthusiasts and photographers, and anyone who appreciates great hospitality and good food. The Austrian Alps have some of the best ski resorts in Europe, with slopes that are fitting for all levels. All resorts are able to provide lessons and you can hire equipment there so even beginners can enjoy the excitement of skiing or boarding down a mountain. Tobogganing is also a popular sport in the area. For the more adventurous, ice climbing is available in some places. Many resorts have ski tournaments and resorts such as Innsbruck provide annual snowboarding tournaments, attracting many fans and worldwide media. A party culture is synonymous with many Alpine resorts such as Kitzbuhel providing bars and nightclubs that attract a stylish, international crowd.
The main city in the Alpine region of Austria is Innsbruck, and both Salzburg and Graz are on the edge of the region. Ski holidays to the Austrian Alps are pretty much all about the skiing but every skier will admit that the après-ski activities are almost as important as the sport itself. Wrap your hands around a hot chocolate on the slopes or head down to the nearest village for some wining and dining. In Bad Gastein you can enjoy some post-slope relaxation in some of its original spa town facilities while skiing in Mayrhofen has a lively mix of bars and clubs that will keep you dancing until dawn. Apart from superb luxury catered chalets, we also offer wonderful apartments for rent, as well as chalets and apartments on a self-catered basis. Everyone should try and visit the Austrian Alps. You will find that you want to return to see the places you did not get to on your first trip.
