For many, Austria is the country of the mountains. The country is 68% above 500 meters. Beautiful motorcycle tours can be made, but also beautiful places to visit. Austria is divided into nine federal states.
Austria as a camper country
Unfortunately, it cannot be said of Austria that it is camper-friendly. Campsites will often have to be used. If you are transiting through Austria, you may spend a maximum of one day overnight outside a campsite or motorhome. But not in Vienna, Tyrol or in the National Parks. Austria is also strict when it comes to the permissible weight of the camper!
Austria as a motor country
The Alpine passes are pre-eminently the touring area of Austria. The roads are often of excellent quality.
