1,200 kilometers long and 150 to 250 kilometers wide! These are the incredible dimensions of the Alpine chain, the highest mountain massif within the inner continent right at the heart of Europe.

The entire Alpine region is rich in cultural and historical attractions and boasts an almost endless choice of sports and activities amid awe-inspiring nature. Holiday dreams will come true!
In the summer you can explore the scenic mountains on wonderful walking tours or during a picture-book (mountain) bike adventure. High altitude fans are strongly recommended to conquer some of the unique rock faces with ropes, ice picks and climbing crampons – of course after an introductory unit with a certified guide and using the appropriate equipment. Families and children or all those in search of relaxation can choose from a great variety of romantic mountain and swimming lakes coupled with water sports and splendid recreational hours. Art, culture, festivals and events are quite tempting offers if you prefer a short break in the lovely Alpine towns. All winter long the Alps are renowned for excellent ski sports and endless fun on the slopes! The most famous winter sport resorts have already become a hot spot also for skiers and snowboarders. And what's best, the most passionate winter fans can enjoy perfect snow conditions in countless glacier ski areas until late spring.
No matter which holiday in the Alps you choose – sports, enjoyment, family or recreation – we wish you a maximum of fun. This truly unique region offers a myriad of highlights to discover and explore, creating memories that will stay with you forever!
