Upper Austria

Experience the real deal

A summer holiday in Upper Austria is a bit like a journey to find yourself. Between mountains and lakes, and surrounded by adventure hotspots and recreation areas, there’s always something to discover. And it’s always the real thing. Art, culture, cuisine - nothing here is set up or staged. In Upper Austria, we find authenticity and make time for family and friends. And there’s the opportunity to enjoy life.

The thing that makes Upper Austria so special is its varied landscape. Hardly any other region offers so many different natural environments in such a compact space: from the mountains and lakes in the Salzkammergut to the fertile foothills of the Alps, the Danube wetlands and the wilderness of the Kalkalpen National Park to the granite hills of the Mühlviertel in the north. The invigorating, lively city of Linz and urban gems such as Steyr, Schärding, Wels and Bad Ischl surprise time and time again.
