Austria is like another world for active vacationers. Situated south of Germany, the country has cold winters with rain in the lowlands and snow in the mountains. Summers are nice and cool with the occasional rain shower. 

For the avid outdoorsman, tour the Alps, hike to the majestic peaks, or bike straight through, enjoying panoramic views and clouds so close you can touch them. Another popular activity is to visit the gorgeous ski slopes of Arlberg or Bad Kleinkirchheim. In Austria, you can ski or snowboard year round.

If you are interested in experiencing the beauty, but want something more relaxing, try a river cruise through Austria’s countryside or fish any of the country’s relaxing national parks like Donau-Auen or Thayatal.  The crystal-clear waters of Grundlsee and Toplitzsee Lakes and breathtaking Krimml Falls will embed the moment in your memory.

For fans of classic music and history, stop by the Hohensalzburg Castle in Slazburg. Its astounding architecture will overwhelm you, and music lovers can enjoy Mozart’s birth city and even the locations where the Sound of Music was filmed. In Vienna, stop by the Schönbrunn Tiergarten. It is the oldest zoo in the world. Or, take a romantic walk through the Schloss Schönbrunn, formal palace gardens arranged in the French style. Afterwards, take in the active Austrian nightlife and delicious foods. 

With castles, abbeys, and an assortment of sites found only here, Austria has something for everyone. So book your private guided tour today through Private Guides.

Guide Licensing Information for Austria


In order to render professional guiding services in Austria, the person has to possess a license; otherwise they will be subjected to substantial fines. First of all, the potential guide has to get respective education in local administration institution, which takes at least a year and a half to complete. After doing so, the solicitor will have to go through a series of exams, part of which is held in German language. It is well known that all types of activities are regulated thoroughly in Austria. Thus, the trials and exams serve as a sort of “filter”, which prevents untrustworthy solicitors from rendering low quality services. 

In the course of education, the future guide has to master a lot of important information on Austria’s culture, traditions, arts and cuisine. After completing the course, the guide is registered in the Chamber of Commerce, providing the exam results and paying the license fee, and becomes an individual entrepreneur, who is required to pay taxes. In case the guide also wishes to provide auto excursions on top of standard walking tours, the vehicle should also be registered as serving a commercial purpose. 

An Austrian guide should always bear a badge with flag and name, certificate and other identification documents, because these may be requested at any time in any place. 


Questions about Austria
Greetings. My husband and I purchased the Vienna Pass. While it gives audio tours of the Schoenbrunn Palace, we are looking for an actual Tour guide for the S. Palace. Do you have any recommendations for such a tour given that we already get in free to the Palace. Thank you.
