Austria in July & August

Will it be busy?

Don't usually book sites but heading towards Seefeld in Tirol, then maybe down to Zell am See. I'm thinking it will be busy, so do you think it's worthwhile booking a couple of sites or just go with the flow.

We only stayed on one site in Austria in Natters near Innsbruck in early July and it was pretty busy but we had no problem getting on. The rest was Stellplatz or wilding and the Austria peak season was surprisingly bereft of motorhomes (mainly Tuggers on the one site). When we were parked up for a week at Hallstatt (must see place) we were up in the cable car car park for a few days on our own and then down in the car park by the lake for a couple of nights with just one or two vans. I think motorhomes over 3.5 tons are put off by the Go Box.

But of course you only need a Go-Box if you use the motorways or A roads ?

I think that might be right but I also gather it's not that easy to avoid those especially if your crossing the country. As it happens I'm only 100 miles or so from Austria today in Bavaria on the Romantic road.

We are also off to the Tyrol end of July. Weather permitting .
Never been in summer but loads in winter for skiing.( not in the motorhome )

Hallstatt is not in the Tyrol area of Austria where I believe wild camping is not tolerated ,

Will be a bit of a shock to the system as our go with the flow travels will be a bit suppressed having to
book into a camp site by reasonable time in afternoon, Unless any of you know otherwise.

We do not book anywhere as plans are never set in stone ,just an idea.

Any Tyrol information would be great help.

I have put one German Grey 11kg cylinder in van ( plus 6kg calor for use during exchange ) , will i have to exchange this in Germany or anyone know if can exchange in Tyrol?

Was hoping to stay in the campsite in Seefeld but it appears the price is 34 Euros a night, which is a bit steep. I was hoping to spend 10 days in Austria, could be an expensive visit

Doesn't have to be. There is an Austrian Motorhome forum which I was a member ot but I dont have laptop access right now so can't link to it. Also camper contact and cc infos list a fair few stellplatz and wild spots. We stayed at Hallstatt for a week and wilded in two places

Stellplatz tend to be a bit more pricey but nowhere near 34 euros

We travelled from south to north 2 summers ago and stayed near Innsbruck for a couple of nights. We managed it on B roads so as to avoid the phaff of getting a Go-Box.

We stayed here in the second week of August. It was busy but not full...

Nice site; good facilities; spectacular mountain views; handy for Innsbruck; nice restaurant on site; great roads heading north into Germany

I like to use big words which I don't really understand so it makes me look more photosynthesis!
