Best places to visit in Austria

  • Vienna: This ancient and romantic city is a sight to behold. The city is the home to several Baroque façades, romantic parks and majestic palaces. A popular spot for visitors is the Innere Stadt (Inner City) that is home to many towering cafés and art deco tea 
  • The Grossglockner: This area is often referred to as the roof of Austria because it sits among the craggy peaks and the majestic summits of the Hohe Tauern massif. This is an amazing location to go hiking and see wondrous alpine landscapes, plus you can drive your rental car on the iconic High Alpine Road. 
  • Zell am See: Many visitors and locals alike think of this town as the quintessential alpine lake town. It is a combination of beautiful blue waters that sit amidst enormous snow-clad mountains. This spot offers some of the best skiing, mountain biking, hiking and sailing you will find in Austria. 

Summer in Austria

A beautiful trip for a warm summer day in Austria is to take the Innsbruck Nordkette up into the Austrian Alps. The cable car makes several stops on the trip up or you can simply choose to go to the top of the mountain for some great views. Another summertime adventure in Austria is to go to the national park at the Hohe Tauern that offers several hiking trails of varying difficulty and length.

I had a question about a late pick-up time and sent an email to the Sixt branch contact email the day before arriving. Dominic replied very quickly and answered my question fully, allowing me to focus on my vacation. The experience at the counter was just as pleasant so I definitely recommend them to anyone renting a car at Salzburg airport.

Mr Dominic was really helpful and went out of his way to assist us on an inquiry related to our next destination planning


Extremely kind staff, really want to give a big shout out to the staff who helped us with our vehicle scheduled on 7 May (12pm).

We booked a manual transmission car online and picked it up but realised that it was a mistake because my husband had been too used to driving an automatic transmission vehicle back in our country -- ran back to stop the staff from leaving (he had already packed up as the office closes at 12pm) and he very very kindly took the time to go back in and find a new automatic vehicle for us even though he could very well have refused us.

Really really appreciate the staff's actions (sorry did not have the chance to catch his name)!

Located inside the Hilton and easily booked by Orbitz this location of Sixt is not only convenient to guests looking for a quick 1-day rental, but affordable and fast. Be mindful of hours as they vary day to day.
