Experience the Austrian 'Lebensgefühl' this Summer

Stunning mountain peaks, endless outdoor activities and artsy cities are only a few reasons that make Austria the perfect summer destination. What makes Austria truly unique, however, are its people, their lifestyle and attitude. Immerse yourself in the joie de vivre, the conscious feeling of taking part in life, the unique feeling that Austrians know as “Lebensgefühl”.  

The Austrian “Lebensgefühl” can be felt in all the small and big moments that guests experience during their Austrian summer escape: The contagious laughter of the hut landlady during a chat in the morning or the banter with a local hiking guide when out and about on a summit tour. The locals on the next table at a wine tavern, discussing the meaning of life until well after Midnight. The enthusiasm of a museum guide explaining the story behind a world-famous painting. Or the slightly grumpy, yet charming waiter in a Viennese café. And let's not forget the art of not taking life too seriously that the Austrians have mastered to perfection.  

Get ready to be enchanted by Austria and the Austrians this summer - we invite you to experience our "Lebensgefühl" first-hand!
