Austrian Tyrol summer trip

hi all motorhomes,
Heading to the Austrian Tyrol in July this year and am hoping some of you wonderful people out there have any tips, ideas and can recommend some idyllic lake side sites to while away a few days in the sun 😁

Check out the cost of tolls. I understand they can be significant if you are over 3500kg.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, its in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

We went to Austria last summer and had a great time. We have an AT Scout so well over 3500kg and had no trouble avoiding the expensive tolls by using the B roads.


We stayed in Zell Am Ziller at Camping Hoffer. Pitches were not particularly generous (not unusual for some European sites but location was excellent for exploring the valley by bike or the excellent railway system.


We stopped 3 nights on the way down and back in Belgium and Germany so will check out the places we stayed and add them to the thread

We loved Austria, Mutters and Natters and Innsbruck area are nice but I loved the Lakes East of Slazburg. Fantastic.

Some info here on my blog if you scroll down to the start of Austria.

Am I missing something here? The OP was in May 14, and it seems to have been reactivated, although I suppose some of the information is useful.

Hi GMLS,

I've just found this thread and wondered if you managed to add the places you stayed onto the thread, if you did I can't see them.

Regards

Peter
