Austria is the new winter sport destination number 1



30. September 2011

According to the World travel monitors Austria represents the most popular travel destination for sporty tourists

Within the last five years the number of Europeans that chose sport holidays over other holiday niches nearly doubled. In 2010, Austria was able to attract around 24 % of all European sport tourists who preferred to go hiking in the mountains, to explore the country on a bicycle or to play golf.

Austria is an admired sport destination as well in summer as in winter time. For Norwegians the Austrian mountain villages Bad Gastein, Saalbach,Ischgl or St. Anton are only a few trendy travel locations that rank on the top of the list for winter holidays.

Beside skiing and other winter sport activities, Austria also stands for excellent spa and wellness holidays. Just lately, the Norwegian crown-princess Mette-Marit chose Austria as her number one destination to spend some relaxing spa days in Carinthia (province in southern Austria) at the beautiful lake “Wörthersee”.
