Best places to visit in Austria

  • 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.

If you are headed to Weiz or any of the surrounding areas, this is the place to rent a bigger better vehicle. I was staying in small town where rental options are very limited and needed a large SUV. Rather than paying excessive airport pickup convenience fees (several hundred €/$) at VIE, I hopped on the train to Weiz Zentrum to pickup same lux SUV (BMW X5) for half the price. FYI... The SIXT agency is located inside the Opal dealership and the sign is not easily visible from the road. My SIXT agent, Winklebauer, was awesome! He made sure everything was tip top before letting me take off in my big "American dream car". I will definitely be renting from here every time I'm in SW Austria.

The service was really good, a surprise after other feedbacks I've received recently (although from other Sixt stores, not this one from Dornbirn). The clerk was nice, explained everything I needed and with something really important nowadays: patience!!! He actually called me explaining the direction where the office was situated (it was located inside a hotel sometime ago and changed to an "external" office from this same hotel building). In summary, well paid, great service, I will return whenever I need.
