Austrian Winter Getaways

Mostviertel is a stunning winter wonderland at this time of year and whilst it is largely a region that fails to fall under the radar of the average international tourist, it has an awful lot to offer those who are willing to stray off the beaten path!

Situated in the southwest corner of lower Austria, The Mostviertel is a region that owes its name to the popular apple cider that is produced and enjoyed locally, (often referred to as the orchard of Austria).

The winter season offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the spectacular views and landscapes in this area and there are plenty of things for visitors to see and do…

Skiing In Mostviertel

With a total of 92km of slopes and a choice of seven ski resorts, hitting the slopes is easy during a winter stay! The resorts in this region reach up to 1626m!

A Rich Cider & Perry Culture

This area is home to a number of excellent cider producers, which is great news if you love cider! Many local producers have dedicated themselves to the production of the most wonderful pear cider and a tour along the 200km Moststraße, a sign posted Cider Trail gives you the unique opportunity to sample this speciality and see for yourself how good it is during leisurely stops on route.

To top it off the quality of the regional food is outstanding so eating out and enjoying the local culture is going to be an absolute pleasure.
