St Anton am Arlberg
If you're headed to Austria during the winter, your first stop should St Anton am Arlberg. Considered one of the best ski resorts in Austria, every level of skier will enjoy this resort in Tyrol, Austria.

Another perfect family winter destination is Innsbruck, which is known for hosting two winter Olympics. This city infuses skiing and historical significance so some of the family can hit the slopes while the less athletic can tour the cathedrals and museums. 
The tomb for Emperor Maximilian I is also located in Innsbruck. Make sure to visit the Bell Museum that highlights the 400 years of bell-making in Innsbruck. 
Right on the German border sits Salzburg, which is famous as the birthplace of Mozart. Located in the Salzkammergut Region, Salzburg is filled with Alpine scenery. Visit the Baroque Mirabell Palace and Gardens as well as Mozart's birthplace and a reconstructed version of his home. You can also book your stay at the iconic von Trapp house featured in "The Sound of Music."
