The Alps region of Austria is famous for its blue-sky days, fresh mountain air, and picturesque scenery. Sights to see include the Krimml Waterfalls (Europe’s highest), quaint farming villages and medieval towns, all of which are framed by mile-high mountains. The Alps are also home to silver mines, Swarovski crystals, fortresses, and castles, all of which bear testimony to the region’s rich history.
Cyclists ride on well-marked asphalt, on nearly traffic-free paths. The cycling is often flat, downhill, or on rolling hills, which are great for families. Tours are also available for more experienced riders who seek a challenge on short, steep ascents and undulating hills. The scenery is unforgettable, and the locals are delightful. The weather is warm from May through September, making that the ideal time to plan your visit.
