After numerous trips to Switzerland, I am looking at Austria for a July 2023 family trip (3 generations, with our kids and 10-year-old grandchildren). We want primarily to hike, but my son and his wife and kids would also enjoy mountain biking. I would like to rent a 3-bdr Ferienwohnung in a town with good hiking access (out the door, or by train to another town, or lift) and a nice public pool (outdoors). Activities like a zip line or climbing garden for the kids would be a bonus. We will not rent a car.
Zillertal came to my attention in a mountain-biking magazine I saw some years back. Mayrhofen in the Zillertal looks like it ticks all the boxes but I am curious if there are other villages I should consider as well. And in the Stubaital, is Neustift the best base?
Thanks for your help. We spent a week in Vienna a couple of years ago, and I visited Salzburg whenI was a student in Germany 50 years ago, but that is the extent of my experience in Austria.
