About Austria

Click here for the best places to stay in Austria

All our Austria collections:

Austria has something to offer every kind of traveller. There's rich cultural heritage, excellent food, grand art and architecture and the landscape of mountains and alpine lakes which is considered one of the world's most beautiful backdrops. So there's plenty of choice when it comes to planning your Austrian experience and choosing the best places to stay in Austria.

This ancient country occupies Europe's crossroads, something it's experienced only too well during both World Wars. Despite feeling old, Austria has only been a nation since 1918, and each of its nine federal states still has a separate feeling and identity, and its own special place in history. But, as well as being at the crossroads, Austria can also be said to occupy Europe's heart. A moderate, very European feeling country boasting plenty of Europe's best assets from Vienna's magical one-of-a-kind architecture to the spectacular alpine ski fields and lush, green, musical Salzburg.

Best Places to Stay in Austria

For a city break

Ah Vienna! The Austrian capital has always been dignified, but there's a thick layer of whipped cream around almost every corner. Its baroque architecture, art galleries and museums, rich musical heritage and cafés and cakes have been magnets for tourists since the days of the Grand Tour.

  • Famed for its torte, the Hotel Sacher is an institution where old world charm meets modern luxury.
  • The Hotel Imperial, Vienna's grand dame, opened its doors in 1873 and is still in fantastic condition with massive suites and marble everywhere!
  • An alternative to these old faithfuls would have to be The Ring a new "casual luxury" hotel, all slick style and cool unfussy rooms.

Graz is Austria's second largest city, and an ancient one, having been founded by the Romans and enjoying its heyday between the 12th and 15th Centuries. Modern Graz is considered a centre of learning, and is one of the best places to stay in Austria to experience its rich culture and heritage.

  • Hotel Wiesler is situated bang in the centre of town and can certainly claim to be a top address in Graz purely by taking a look at its guest book....names range from the Rolling Stones to Schwarzenegger!
  • The Schlossberg Hotel is elegant and sophisticated and benefits from sprawling terraced gardens despite its city centre location. It's a good option for families with a wide range of accommodation including suites and apartments.

Salzburg's two famous claims are Mozart and The Sound of Music. And yes, musical this town is; walking round the Heritage listed Altstadt you'll hear recitals drift from the many churches. And down side streets you'll hear snatches of classical music pouring from open windows. But Salzburg is also very beautiful, something Mozart himself was very proud of.

  • Right next to the cathedral, the Boutique Hotel Am Dom is the best place to stay in Salzburg if you don't want to walk far to see the sights. Converted from an 800 year old town house, its decor is now quite modern.
  • Arthotel Blau Gans is the perfect city break hotel. Converted from an ancient building, it is both charming and comfortably modern and clean. There's great art on the walls, the restaurant has a good reputation for excellent use of local produce, and is popular with locals as well as guests. And it's centrally located.

For the Ski Season

Zürs, Lech and St Anton are part of Lech Zurs am Arlberg, one of the world's great ski destinations, and skiers only need one pass to ski this whole winter wonderland of 80+ inclines and over 276kms worth of slopes. As well as getting excellent snow coverage, this location is also spectacularly surrounded by alps. Until the end of the 19th Century Lech spent the winters cut off from the outside world, and the traditional village look remains. Pretty and popular, Lech is the kind of place you're likely to see Bentleys with snow chains.

  • If you want a resort with everything, then Thurnhers Alpenhof is one of the best places to stay in Zürs. There's an in-house skiing and snowboarding instructor and a spa, and staff will devise a personalised programme for you - which can also include gourmet five to eight course dinners every evening.
  • For a wonderful, traditional alpine experience, you can't go past the Hotel Arlberg. It's a five star luxury chalet right in the centre of town, and one of the best places to stay in Lech if you're looking for a ski-in ski-out location with fur throws, wood panelling, open fires and antlers.
  • Hotel Schwarzer Adler combines the tradition of St Anton with a position ideal for the bars and nightclubs, especially Bar Cuba, which dominate St Anton’s nightlife.

Kitzbühel's charming medieval centre makes a pretty addition to one of Austria's best ski resorts, known for its skiing, restaurants, apres-ski and off slope activities. Kitzbühel's historic Tirolean centre is pretty and pedestrianised and there are plenty of nice boutiques to poke around in and cafes to people watch in. On race weekends the town is packed with around 70,000 spectators, so there's a lot of life!

  • If you're looking for five stars worth of alpine splendour that won't break the bank try the Weisses Rossl.
  • Hotel Tennerhof looks a bit like one of those beautiful cuckoo clocks, and, with its views over the town and the mountains, it's just as charming inside as it is out. It has just 16 rooms and 19 suites, so a good option if you're looking for somewhere intimate.

For the best of both worlds

Innsbruck sits nicely between the city break destinations and the skiing destinations, as it offers both. You can spend one day exploring grand Habsburg palaces and the next day skiing in this relaxed, and exceptionally beautiful, Tyrolean capital.

Our top picks here are either the Grand Hotel Europa or The Penz. Both are luxury hotels in the centre of town with a reputation for great food.
