Moving.

Scenery.

A woman with short, dark hair wearing a light-coloured spotty short-sleeved dress is seen from the back, gazing into the rosy dawn of the Mühlviertel region in Upper Austria. The background displays the hilly landscape, green meadows, a meadow trail, trees and a farm.

Liberating.

Invigorationg.

Evening in Linz in Upper Austria: the Ars Electronica Center lit up in red. Several people sit on the tiers on the roof of the Futurelab in front of it. The Nibelungen Bridge, Linz Castle, Old Town Hall and the Cathedral of St Mary are in the background.

Contemporary.

Four young people go swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Lake Langbath in Upper Austria. There are green reeds in the lake; the mountains of the Salzkammergut can be seen in the background.

Summer fresh.

Incredible experiences.

Upper Austria is like a well-stocked speciality shop where you can find everything that Austria is famous for in condensed form – and this incredibly beautiful corner of the world covers just 11,983 km2. One example is its crystal-clear lakes, and that invigorating feeling of being alive when you dive in. Mountains and forests that awaken the wild in us. Cities that show us today and point the way to tomorrow. Foods that nourish both body and soul. Bubbling thermal baths that warm and revitalise us. Routes that are well-loved but still off the beaten path. Upper Austria is shaped by its many farms but also a successful business location: Fischer brand skis, steel from Voest, and motors made by BMW are sold all over the world.

In other words, Upper Austria is a speciality shop where you’d like to take as many things along with you as possible. Such as the fresh summer air in the Salzkammergut region, like sparkling wine that never goes flat. The view from the hills of the Mühlviertel region and the towering peaks of Pyhrn-Priel. And cycling along the beautiful curves of the Danube or the charm and contemporary vibe of Linz, the Capital of Culture.

Destinations in Upper Austria

In the Salzkammergut region, mountains and lakes come together to form an inspiring backdrop. Then there's the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut. And imperial history. Refreshing summer retreats experienced by Gustav Klimt and others. The holiday region of Pyhrn-Priel stages its mountains as a sports arena, from the World Cup ski region of Hinterstoder in winter to hiking, climbing and adventure in summer. Feel history in every nook of the Danube Valley. Castles and ruins tower atop mountain ridges, pointing the way for wayfarers on the Danube Cycle Trail. And in the midst of it all, the regional capital of Linz, seated on the banks of the Danube. Voted European Capital of Culture in 2009, this UNESCO City of Media Arts pulses with a contemporary culture scene. The highlands of the Mühlviertel promise vast expanses and restorative pleasure. Old artisan crafts and tradition flourish here, constantly reinventing themselves.

Salzkammergut.

Summer freshness rediscovered.

Imposing mountains and stunning lakes, world-famous locales such as the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hallstatt, the charming imperial town of Bad Ischl or St. Wolfgang on the banks of the Wolfgangsee: all are the perfect invitation to rediscover the meaning of a summer retreat.

Dive in and start living, right here and now. You'll soon be rubbing shoulders with the grandeur of past times.

Pyhrn-Priel.

One of the Alps' most beautiful outdoor fitness centres.

Sometimes tranquil and contemplative, sometimes wild and rocky, just like you: the mountains of the Pyhrn-Priel region.

Whether on a breathtaking mountain bike tour, on a guided hike in the Kalkalpen National Park or embarking on the labyrinthine paths of the Wildererweg ("Poacher Trail"), one thought and two words will follow you all the way home: incredibly powerful.

Pyhrn-Priel
Rear view of a man in sports gear with a rucksack and rope, standing on a crag amidst the mountain world of the Pyhrn-Priel region in Upper Austria. Craggy mountains and a cloud-dappled sky in the background.

Linz.

Currently anchored in the future.

Linz is a place of transformation. It is evolving; and its visitors evolve with it.

The former steel town is a pulsing cultural institute today and a city that's all the rage. Progress is always on the agenda here. As a UNESCO City of Media Arts, Linz is an international hub of creativity. A city whose open-mindedness and dynamism is tangible wherever you go.

Danube Upper Austria.

Moving bends and stirring outlooks.

Go with the flow along the Danube, and discover that the most beautiful way to get from A to B is to follow the curve. Try cycling on the Donauradweg (Danube Cycle Trail) or hiking on the Donausteig (Danube Trail) and you'll see what we mean.

Enjoy the legendary view points, such as the Schlögener Schlinge oxbow, and delight in the charming spots and sophisticated cultural experiences that line the route of this great river.

Mühlviertel.

Precious space for fresh ideas.

Lush green meadows, mystical forests and gentle hills - the "Granithochland" of the Mühlviertel region in the north of the country is the perfect invitation to stretch your legs and exercise your mind.

Refreshingly different, with down-to-earth people who build their "Steinbloßhäuser" stone farmhouses out of granite and whose strong will and determination is forever shaping new things.
