Best apres-ski in the world
Austria is famous for its mountains and ski resorts, but it’s also regarded as the best destination for après ski too. The party starts off in the early afternoon and offers an unrivalled atmosphere with crowds gathering to sing along to old favourites and even dance on the tables.
You’ll find good après-ski bars everywhere in Austria, serving shots by the metre and beers sold in steins. Or, imagine holding a hot Glühwein around a log fire with your loved ones in a rustic hut, not much can come close to that special experience. There’s something for everyone when skiing in Austria.
