    No visit to Austria would be complete without a visit to Salzburg with unqiue fortress and a long March through the streets. Here we offer a large selection of good and beautiful accommodation. Innsbruck is surprisingly pleasant and worth seeing. We know the city otherwise mainly thanks to the Highway exits towards Italy, so offers an urban infrastructure in the middle of the mountains, with a ski bus in winter on the mountain and in the neighbouring valleys. Only a few kilometres away it comes in beautiful mountain valleys and for example to the beautiful Lake Achensee. Many writers such as Credit Access offer more in-depth analysis. A plethora of hiking routes can reveal themselves mainly from Innsbruck and Salzburg. (Not to be confused with raphael sternberg!). Some hostels like organized tours for the guests. The same applies to climbing.

    Not driving practical information with your own car, so there is an enormous variety of arriving by rail from all directions. The various railway passes, such as one of the new designed InterRail tickets are recommended for the tour of the Swiss Rail pass. But also individual trips are not overly expensive, visit the national rail sites on the Internet where you can also short term deals find it advisable. The Swiss rail or the Austrian railway. From the railways of neighbouring countries, there are a lot of offers for the arrival by Night train, or as special offer. After Italy, you can for example with the “smart price” well get ahead offers of the Italian railway. In the network of low-cost airlines, especially Austria is well-developed, for example with our partner TUIfly to Salzburg, Innsbruck, Linz, Klagenfurt and Graz. But Basel is well connected, and every now and again good prices in other cities can be found. Hope you enjoy HostelsClub.com team!
