Combining Camping With Sightseeing In Austria!

Taking a camping and hiking trip in the beautiful European country of Austria is a popular choice for holiday goers and families as the nation is filled with fantastic scenery, and fresh mountain air. There are plenty of areas to hike and camp and feel at one with Mother Nature.  Two of the most popular self-catering campgrounds are located right in the middle of the country’s lakes and mountains.


One of the most popular is near the capital city of Innsbruck in the country’s Tirol region and is called Natterer See. This is situated in the heart of the wonderful alpine region and features some of the most spectacular lakes and mountains in the land. It has all the components of classic Austrian scenery as it is home to lush green meadows, snow-capped peaks and traditional Austrian wooden chalets.

It’s a very popular spot for nature lovers, hikers, and campers due to the breathtaking landscapes and clean air. There are many outdoor activities to enjoy such as skiing, hiking, and water sports. However, the region might be more famous for its winter sports as the Winter Olympics were held here twice. Camping at Natterer See offers you the freedom to enjoy the glorious terrain and do as you please, such as walking, skiing, hiking, shopping, sightseeing, and just relaxing.

Another popular place to camp is Sportcamp Woferlgut, which lies in the picturesque province of Salzburg. You’ll find the fabulous Salzkammergut Mountains and lakes here and it’s just made for camping. Sportcamp Woferlgut is located at Zell Am See and sits among the region’s lush meadows, crystal-clear lakes, and towering mountain peaks.

The historic city of Salzburg, which was the home to Mozart and Baroque, is close by and the skyline is simply amazing as it’s dominated by domes, turrets, and medieval spires. The city centre if teeming with bustling street cafes where you can relax and watch the world go by.

The campsites are ideal for holiday bases as they’re close enough to the historic towns and sites. This allows campers to explore the history and culture of Austria and camp in the gorgeous countryside at the same time. The campgrounds offer wonderful scenery as well as the chance to stay active.

Austria is a fantastic place to enjoy any time of the year and it attracts thousands of tent and caravan campers from all over the Europe every year.
