The Austrian Alps are not just for winter, there’s a host of things to do in the region during the summer, too.
If you ever watched Heidi, then you’ll know that the Alps are carpeted with lush grass and beautiful flowers during the summer months – perfect for hiking or cycling. You may also recall the quaint mountain hut that Heidi and Grandpa enjoyed many an idyllic hour in.
You too can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the Alps in summer with a range of activities that introduce you to the authentic Austria. The perfect mountain hut – Alm – awaits you with a rustic flavour and traditional regional cooking prepared by your host. Cycle or hike to your mountain hut and experience authentic Alpine Austria.
If cities also interest you, then you will not be disappointed. Salzburg is less than an hour from CLC Alpine Centre and offers art, culture and of course, Mozart. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Salzburg´s Old Town is split in two by the River Salzach; crossing one of the numerous bridges allows you to admire the architecture of either side, including the magnificent Fortress Hohensalzburg.
Whatever you enjoy, whether on foot or two wheels, Alpine Austria is a must-go-to summer destination.
