Holidays to Kaprun conjure up images of lavish days gone by – think Medieval monuments, enchanting hiking trails and snap-worthy fortresses.

Visit for the views

Much like its north-central neighbour Salzburg – and much of Austria – Kaprun delivers big on alpine views. There are lots of walking trails in this hiker's paradise that lead up to mountain peaks. Kick back after your climb by soaking in Tauern Spa, or sip on a hot chocolate in the comfort of a cosy café.

Tales from the past

Kaprun's 12th-century castle was a war-ready fortress back in the day. Now it's a super-cool events space, hosting weddings, concerts and even Medieval festivals in its stone walls. If you're looking for something a little more small-scale, visit the charming hilltop church of St Margareta, a 90-minute drive away.

Walk on the wild side

Kaprun's got bundles of Austria's famous natural beauty. Lace up those hiking boots and power along the trails of Mount Maiskogel. If you're truly intrepid, check out the town of Zell Am See – there's another mountain to tackle here, as well as an Alpine glacier to ski on.
