We rediscovered Austria about five to six years ago, after a gap of around twenty years.
We found the people we met were refreshingly informal, very helpful, kind and very trusting.
We enjoyed the skiing in Kaprun and the fact that with the glacier it meant that the skiing was reliable. We loved the lake in Zell am See and the summer activities that it offered. We continue to be impressed with the modern Austrian infrastructure with its road, rail or ski lift networks. We found that the contrast between summer and winter, the mix of mountains, lakes, cities, sports, history and culture suited us all as a family - the scenery was an extra bonus.
The opening of of the fantastic Tauern Spa Kaprun was a further substantial enhancement to this wonderful area.
