What can you do in Upper Austria?

Upper Austria in summer

There are so many different ways you can experience Upper Austria’s gentle summer breezes in your face. You might feel it tickling your nose as you ride bicycle. Or it might be a breath of air stroking your cheek while hiking. Or a breeze filling the sails and carrying your boat across the lake.


All throughout the year

But some things are always in season in Upper Austria. Such as culture and tradition. Or a wellness holiday.


Winter in Upper Austria

When winter has Upper Austria in its icy grip, it's peak season for skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. You'll find fantastic ski areas and cross-country skiing trails, wonderful winter hiking routes and high-speed sledging runs wherever you look. The season of Advent is a time of peace when the home of the Christkindl, the bringer of gifts, shines with a festive glow. Until winter's spell is broken by the lively carnival fools and the Glöckler in their colourful headdresses, ushering in the new season of spring.
