Alpbach has a population of 2,600 and is located in a beautiful location, on a sunny plateau 1,000 meters above sea level, in the Tyrol area. Its stunning architecture and incredible floral decorations have made it the "most beautiful village in Austria" and the "most lovely flowery village in Europe". 

Visit to enjoy the fresh air, green meadows and engage in a variety of activities: Whether you are hiking, cycling, playing tennis or just relaxing, the Alpbach is the place to be. 

St. Gilgen

St. Gilgen is a well-known travel destination. Boats from St Gilgen sail around Lake Wolfgangsee, offering transport and views of the surrounding mountains. In 2005 St. Gilgen was declared the "village of Mozart" by the Wolfgangsee tourism organization. Although the great composer never visited the village (as he wished), his grandfather worked in the city, his mother was born there, and his sister moved there after her marriage. So his connection with this village is definitely great. 

St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut

The St. Wolfgang Im Salzkammergut is a commercial town in the Salzkammergut region of Upper Austria. It is located on the north shore of Lake Wolfgangsee (near the cities of Strobl and St. Gilgen in the Salzburg region), at the foot of the Schafberg mountain. It is a spa destination and is also a popular ski resort in winter. A cog railway, the Schafbergbahn, will take you up the mountain. 


The village of Hallstatt, almost in the center of Austria, is so impressive that even the Chinese have created a replica of this ancient salt-settlement. But only in the authentic Austrian village will you discover a unique culture with a fascinating history in a breathtaking mountain environment. The commercial municipality had already been inhabited during the 1st millennium BC: during this period - in the Iron Age - its civilization flourished. And today, it is a beautiful travel destination. 


This beautiful village, which has maintained its rural character, exerts countless charms, due to its sunny location, on a cosy plateau above the Inntal Valley. The scenic countryside trails around the Alps are suitable for every level of fitness and make Tulfes an outdoor paradise that caters to every taste. Mount Glungezer, symbolizing Tyrol, is nearby. 

It is one of the most beautiful mountains in the country, offering stunning views of the opposite Karwendel mountain range and the Inntal valley. In one of these mountains of the Austrian Alps, you can experience fantastic moments next to the soft snow, spending endless hours on the dozens of ski slopes and winter resorts. 

And if, on the other hand, all this planning seems to you a tedious process, now with the valuable help of Erna Low, you can find complete vacation packages at the winter resort of your choice, at the lowest market prices. 

Furthermore, the small town of Krems on the Danube River is worth a visit all year round. You can take a dip in the river or enjoy the view of the Wachau Valley - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are not many cities in Austria that can offer such a wide variety of cultural, historical and gastronomic options. The city is over 1000 years old and impresses its visitors with its unparalleled beauty.
