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.

Excellent service at the service desk, the car was clean, the customer service was fair and professional, I highly recommend renting a car from them

Adeline Le M.

Very friendly and skilled staff, really helpful in my case (driving grom Austria to Slovakia, with nice tips). Only point is to actually find the desk, quite hidden, but very close to the car park.


I had a very good experience, mostly due to customer service representative. I am sorry that I cannot rememeber the name, but the person had a very client oriented approach, it was very positive and was really interested to meet all the needs.

Car was clean, all the papers were all right, I would recommend the service.

Jeffrey G.

Easy car pickup and friendly staff.


Seems like mixed reviews - but it was reasonably efficient (at least in my case). Did the booking online + came over to collect + staff helped to switch the car language to English + there was no fuss with the car collection or returning. Relatively straightforward return process too, which was to park in the huge car park opposite the outlet.

Jeffrey G.

The Sixt representative was very friendly and helpful. The car was in excellent condition, and we appreciated that it has built in navigation.
