Our places to stay in Oberosterreich - Upper Austria - are in a variety of landscapes: mountains such as the Hollengebirge; the broad valley of the Danube; a large part of the Salzkammergut and its lakes. Some of it is thickly forested, some wide open fields.
The state capital, the city of Linz, gave the world the famous Linzertorte, and successfully combines old with new. Thousands go there each year for the Bruckner Festival. Don’t overlook this part of Austria because you hadn’t heard about it. Everywhere, there are the small inns and rural retreats that make holidays special.
As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Oberosterreich offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (gasthofe), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
