Our partner PiNCAMP has put together a fantastic route through Austria and the Alps for you. Come along on the trip of a lifetime, which leads you to snow-covered peaks, dense forests and turquoise mountain lakes.

You reach the first stop of the journey just after crossing the German-Austrian border. A beautiful mountain valley with the turquoise blue Walchsee opens up in front of you. In winter there are ten ski slopes tempting you to hurtle down them, and in the warm summer you can spend your time at the lake or in the Zahmer Kaiser amusement park.

To discover even more of the beauty of Austria, your next stop should be in Zell am See. This is a place full of natural wonders which are just waiting to be discovered. The nearby national park, “Hohe Tauern”, which is characterised by its many pathways through the fantastic Alpine landscape with different levels of difficulty, is perfect for an excursion.

The journey continues to Lienz in Tyrol. Schloss Bruck, which was built by the counts of Gorizia, impresses with colourful frescos and alternating travelling exhibitions. You can enjoy the breathtaking views with a cool drink in the beer garden.

At Lake Millstatt you can experience nature in the UNESCO biosphere park, “Nockberge”. You can enjoy the impressive landscape on a short hike.

Just before the end of this tour, you can make a quick stop in Villach. We recommend the spas of the thermal “Warmbad Villach” resort, where you can treat yourself to a break and relax. Culinary delights can be discovered in the city’s outstanding restaurants.

The trip ends in Klagenfurt. The city impresses not just with its spectacular location at the Wörthersee, but also with the picturesque inner city, where you can relax, shop and recharge your batteries. If you'd rather get away from the city, you can’t go wrong with the region around the Wörthersee. As well as many points of interest such as Affenberg Landskron, there is also a zoo and Schloss Rosegg (Rosegg castle).
