Austria Anyone?

Hi

I am a stickler for beautiful scenery and I have to say Austria looks so beautiful.

I love holidays in the Sun and warmth but I'm not sure what it would be like in Austria in June which is when we plan on having our first holiday this year.

Has anyone ever been to Austria, if so I would love to hear your experience.

I don't know anyone who has ever been to Austria, for European holidays it's usually Spain, Greece, Italy.

Hi

Austria is beautiful, but stupidly expensive.

My cousin said exactly the same - especially so in Vienna.

Re: Austria Anyone?

I have been to Austria twice.Would love to go again but age says otherwise. We stayed at Bruk and Zelenzee in the western Tyrol.
Innsbruck and Salzburg are beautiful places but get very overcrowded during the summer months.
You go and I'm sure you will love it. The scenery among the mountainous area is awe inspiring and takes your breath away.

Re: Austria Anyone?

I stayed in Mayrhofen for a week when I was a teenager. It is still probably the prettiest place I have seen, blue rivers, lush green grass and wooden chalet houses with bright red flower boxes. We went in August and had lovely warm weather.

We also ventured up to the top of the Hintertux Glacier which was very cold but beautiful.

Ask yourself, "Do they have koalas?"

I see you sneaking an extra "al" in there, Bruce.

LQ, while not Austria anymore, I spent a week in southern Tyrol in Italy this summer, and it was beyond-description-beautiful! It was August and the temps were perfect. It was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. You might want to check for rain in the mountain regions during June.
