Austria’s 2018 family vacation trip

Scroll down to content

While writing this I remembered my first trip to Austria in 2008. I was amused by the nature, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. My favourite part is the alpine mountain, it reminded me of “sound of music”.

Now this trip was my 5th visit to Austria, but its different from the previous ones.

What is different about it?

Hiking ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our trip was 2 weeks, first week was in Katschberg, and second week was in Schladming. In both places they provided us with hiking maps, activities book, and all those booklets that have tourism attractions. This is really helpful especially if you didn’t plan ahead.

WEEK 1

Katschberg is part of Sulzberger Lungau (Salzburg land). It’s known for skiing in winter and hiking in summer.

So spending our time there was a new experience especially the hiking, we didn’t do a full route, but we’ve tried the smaller one. Hiking is an amazing experience that I’ve never thought that I will fall in love with.

We stayed inย Speckalm apartmentsย the location of this apartments is perfect for skiing in winter. Its clean, quiet, and I loved my stay in here. Note for winter travellers:ย itโ€™s right next to the skiing slope, which make it a perfect choice for winter.

Put in your consideration that going down St Micheal will need 7 – 12 mins and this is where we go to buy our groceries for dinner. Why groceries from St Micheal, we love Spar and there where we can find it. There is a small supermarket in Katschberg that is near our apartments, we use it for emergency when we run out of milk or bread in the early morning.

Okay FRBDA we might feel that we want to drive to other places near by.

Those are the places that I choose, if you want to drive to:

Villach 54 min
Bled 1 h 29 min
Ljubljana 2 hours
Vienna 3 h 54 mins
Bad hofgastein 1 h 24 min
Hallstatt 1 h 47 mins

*Note: Bled and Hallstatt trip wasn’t successful for us, we reached there but I discovered they both have limited parking areas, it was really crowded with a long traffic. Hallstatt is even smaller than Bled, its something that I wished that I knew before, because for a family with children it was a hard situation reaching there not finding a park then going back to our apartment. So double check your timing and put this in your mind.ย 

Katschberg has different activities for the family in summer other than hiking, like summer ride, adventure climb, and few restaurants.

WEEK 2

Schladming is the location that is full of activities, and I mean it too many.

We stayed in Sun Lodge Schladmingย loved the place, the view, and everything. I have one note in the garden view apartment (our apartment) we usually have night visitors like spiders, and others unwanted guests. So if you want to avoid this, book the levels above, and put in your mind that the balcony is glass, so people walking the garden might see you and say hi ๐Ÿ™‚ lool

They gave us a summer card of each person with our names on it (I still have mine ๐Ÿ˜‰ its cute) you can have access to different cable cars in different areas around. Plus different range of activities, some with free access, some is discounted with the summer card. Put in your mind some the places need a previous online booking.

For all the activities around and all the information about the destination will be provided by the apartments reception, they will explain everything, then you will have your booklet were you can search for activities and have more info.

One place that we loved so much in this trip is Der Wilde Berg Mautern, it is an alpine wild life safari, located on the mountain. It have a small play park inside where you can enjoy playing ๐Ÿ™‚
