Upper Austria

Upper Austria

Worth experiencing.

Upper Austria is like a well-stocked delicatessen, where you can get everything that defines Austria in a compact form on an extremely pretty 11,983 km². Crystal-clear lakes, for example, to head into and feel the tingling life. Mountains and forests that awaken the wild in us. Cities that show us today and tomorrow. Food that deserves this name. Bubbling spas that warm and strengthen us. Paths that are happy to be followed but have not emerged. Upper Austria is characterized by agriculture and economically successful: Skis from the Fischer brand, steel from Voest, BMW engines go out into the world.

Upper Austria is such a delicatessen where you would like to take everything with you. The summer retreat in the Salzkammergut, for example, a lively classic with no expiry date - as the view from the hills of the Mühlviertel and the peaks of the Pyhrn-Priel area.

The delightfully cycled curves of the Danube or the zeitgeist and charm of the cultural city of Linz. We only need to access it. The Upper Austrians like to share. You know: what goes around, comes around. And you can never get enough of the good coming back to you. The best thing is to look at everthing quite closely. There is no best season for that. There are only four good ones.
