Winter holidays in Austria are more popular than ever before, as reflected in the preliminary figures for the winter season 2016/2017 from Statistics Austria : both the number of overnights (68.57 million /+0.1%) and the number of arrivals (18.82 million/+2.5%) hit record highs.

The primary contributor to the best-ever results for a winter season was the 13.2 million guests from abroad (+2.8%), who accounted for a total of 52.66m overnights. The number of Austrian guests also climbed (5.57 million/+1.8%).

Most of the overnights by foreign visitors in the period November 2016 to April 2017 were generated by Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Liechtenstein and the Czech Republic.
