Are you looking for the best places to visit in Austria? Are you on the search for picturesque hikes that are doable for an average hiker – or an average family?
Living in Hungary, Austria is our neighboring country. We’re in love with Vienna and visit it each year, sometimes even more than once.

Whether you’re interested in culture or nature, we have lots of tips and guides to help you see the best of Austria – just scroll below.

We’ve been travelling together for more than 8 years, and our baby boy who was born last year also joined us on our adventures. We have extensively travelled throughout Europe and the USA, especially California. We’ve had a wonderful campervan trip in Australia where we dream to return.
