Austrian Alps: A pocket guide

Panoramic view of idyllic summer landscape in the Alps

Often overshadowed by its neighbouring Swiss and French counterparts, the Austrian Alps ooze tradition, culture and mountain charm. Small, chocolate box resorts full of character are dotted all over the mountain range. The Austrian Alps are home to some of the most luxurious ski resorts in the world, with the likes of trendy St Anton am Arlberg and the prestigious resort of Lech. Both resorts boast some of the most stunning ultimate luxury chalets in Europe.

Chic Ski Resorts

The Austrians are famed for their Après Ski, and you are never short of a decent Après Ski bar in any of the Austrian resorts, many being the glamorous hangouts for the rich and famous. The royals have even been known to frequent a few. If Après Ski is not your thing then indulge in a spot of retail therapy at the exclusive shopping boutiques, including Strolz – ground zero for stylish (and wealthy) skiers, and the trio of Sagmeister stores, housing designer brands such as Valentino and Prada.

Foodie Heavens

Foodies will love Austrian cuisine, which is rapidly becoming one of the biggest food trends. Traditional Austrian food is served in most restaurants and you won’t be able to avoid having at least one fondue. The Austrian Alps offer fantastic skiing for all ages and for all abilities; whether you are a first lift, seasoned snow hound or simply there for the Après Ski, the resorts of Austria will not disappoint.
