Hi all , Usually posting in the ST section but thought might get some ideas from the European section for this thread.

Starting to plan next years summer holiday and have a couple things that could do with some help.....

Does anyone have and recomendations for "Biker Friendly" hotels in Austria ? (Pref with pool)

What is the reliable season for riding in this area ?

Hi,

Can't help you much, but have a few pointers.

Are you looking for hotel, or just bead and breakfast? There's ton of those, in every village. some(most?) have even garages for bikes.

The whole of middle/southern europe is on vacation in august, so it could get crowded at some of the more well known resorts/spots. start to look for accomodation in the afternoon.. later it could be difficult.
Late May/early June some of the "passo's" could be closed due to snow and it's not uncommon to snow even when the weather in the valley is warm and sunny.

cheers,

Thanks for the reply.

Wife prefers a proper hotel with pool for the days we dont ride.
Probably going for SH June so we are sure its rideable.
Went down to Italy last year with a brief stay in Austria and want to do the area properly next year hence the early planning !

hi, I'm a new member at ducati.ms and I'm living in Austria,
lovely season for bike riding in Austria is May to July, August can get sometimes hot
and crowded on the roads, in May the weather can be mixed, if you tell me where you'd like to go to and stay I'll provide some information for you.
Greetings from Salzburg and the Mountains

Hi Erich

Sorry for the slow response.

We are thinking maybe Landeck area as its central but dont want to go up and down the same road every time just to get out of a valley.
Preferably something in a small town/large village so that we can take a beer or meal occasionally outside of the hotel without riding.
Own pool is preferred but not essential.

Any suggestions will be welcome particarly if there is a website to check out before having to book anything.

Nice hotel, great location (center of anything), you can park on the cobblestones right in front of reception.

post pics, thinking about an austria run next summer.

I have a pretty good hotel on the Italian side..

VILLA CHELE
via della Fusinella, 2
loc. Pralongo
32012 Forno di Zoldo (BL)
Italia
Tel. +39 0437 78585
Fax +39 0437 794219

Very nice hotel situated in a valley. The only way to get there is through the classic serpentine roads. I had more fun finding it then actaully staying there. More of a B&B kind of place then a hotel. But service was very good and the "Pizzeria" in the valley was on par with the best i have ever eaten.

Nice place to stay if you use the Brenner pass from Austria to Italy.

I've stayed at this place a few times. It's a beautiful hotel and has a parking garage and great food. It's a small hike to the town, but worth it in my opinion. Great riding around there too.

Thanks - This one looks really interesting , Have you stayed there as a "Biker" or only in a tin box ?

I know that mainland Europe is more accepting of us bikers but still wondered ?

Up here in Scotland the hotels are getting better and definitely more accomodating than in England (I speak as a Southerner not a Scot)

I've never taken my bike there because I've always been with 2 or 3 others that don't ride, but I've seen a handful bikes both times I've been. My next trip with be on my bike for sure, and it's only about 4 hours from me so it's a perfect 2 day trip. There is an underground indoor parking garage, or you can park outside if you like. Just so you know, I would guess it's about a 2 mile hike to get into town if you plan on walking. There is a trail from the hotel which is on the side of a mountain. You can see the entire town from the hotel. Definitely my favorite place to stay in Austria.
