INDEX

AUSTRIA

In the land of Mozart and Empress Sisi, Austria’s many castles have plenty of appeal for the very young, who will have a lot of fun while discovering the stories they hold. The mountains are as inviting for outdoor pursuits in winter as in summer. The lakes more than make up for the sea when it comes to swimming. The neat villages and homely atmosphere make Austria an ideal starting point for parents taking their first steps as family travellers.

CHILDREN WILL LOVE…

Memories of emperors, princes and princesses

» In Vienna, the Sisi Museum – particularly for girls! Set inside the Hofburg Palace, it features portraits and clothes of the famous empress.

» The Schönbrunn Palace: this former royal summer residence houses a museum with little ones in mind. It depicts daily life for the royal children (dressing up is possible at the end of the visit!).

» A trip in a horse-drawn carriage through the streets of Vienna.

» The Kaiservilla, another royal summer residence set in a pretty park in the spa town of Bad Ischl in Upper Austria.

A fairy-tale atmosphere

» Painted houses, country villages, baroque churches topped with bells, bulb farms and fertile pastures with grazing cows: this land will transport you into a picture-book past, especially in the Tyrol, home to many Austrian traditions.

» The castles of Salzburg: the Hohensalzburg fortress, which you reach by funicular; and Hellbrunn Palace with its ‘trick’ fountains.

» Mozart’s house, to turn your little angels into budding music lovers.

Custom-made entertainment

» The puppet theatre in Salzburg: classic opera pieces performed by wooden puppets!

» The Prater: home to amusement rides (including the famous big wheel!) and the puppet theatre in this vast park in Vienna.

» Shows at the Spanish Riding School (the world-renowned equestrian centre).

Outdoor activities

» Cross-country and downhill skiing: national pastimes especially in the Tyrol and in the Austrian Alps. The ski resorts of Filzmoos (Salzburg region) and Heiligenblut (Carinthia) are particularly family friendly.

» 50,000km of sign-posted pathways countrywide, ideal for walking, and the superb network of cycle paths.

» Swimming in the lakes when the weather is good. Neusiedl Lake, nicknamed the ‘Viennese Sea’, is a Unesco World Heritage site.

» The Danube Island in Vienna, with its safe beaches and many recreational pursuits.

Excursions for the adventurous

» The Erzberg iron ore mine: you can explore underground galleries and, for a bit of a thrill, watch a sound and light re-enactment of an explosion. There is also an above-ground tour of the open pit on the back of a huge mining truck.

» The Eisriesenwelt caves, the biggest glacial (in every sense!) caves open to visitors in the world.

BEST TIME TO GO

Winter sports season runs from mid-December to March. The resorts are packed (and more expensive) during the Christmas holidays. The rest of the time you can fully enjoy a rich natural environment, cycle, and swim in the lakes! Most major festivals take place between May and October.

COST

All the grandeur of Austria comes at a cost. It is a fairly pricey
