If you’re a keen player at home, coming away to the mountains doesn’t mean you have to take a hiatus – and if you’ve never picked up a racket before, now’s the time to find out what all the fuss is about. Austria’s well known for its world-class clay courts – former top seed and Austrian native Thomas Muster was even known as the ‘King of Clay’ at his peak.

See below for our shortlist of Austrian resorts that are just ace for tennis. When putting the list together, we took into account factors like the number of courts, the presence of indoor courts in case of bad weather, and floodlighting for games after dark. Head to one of these hotshot destinations for a match or two, and you can’t go far wrong!

Holidays in the ten best Austrian tennis resorts

The Tyrolean architecture, flower-covered meadows and glimmering Wildsee lake are enough to stop you in your tracks but Seefeld is more than a pretty face; Mother Nature has made a real adventure base here. With hundreds of kilometres to walk and cycle, 17 tennis courts, 2 golf courses and a paragliding academy, you’ll have to remember to hit pause and enjoy the sights.

This stunning lakeside town is surrounded by rolling hills and pine forests in Austria’s beautiful Salzkammergut region. The lake itself is said to be one of the cleanest in Austria, and you can tell – the amazing aquamarine water is crystal clear. The area’s great for rambling and cycling – if it’s sunny, hire a rowing boat or pedalo for a day on the lake.

Mayrhofen is ‘traditional Austrian’ from head to toe and the town has a refreshing buzz to it all summer long. Cross alpine pastures, speed down the Penken and discover deep gorges and canyons before letting your hair down with a stein and some Austrian folk music – you’d struggle to find a ‘best for Alps activities’ list that this place doesn’t crop up on.

The market town of Sankt Johann in Tirol has charm in every nook and cranny, with coloured chalets, chic cafes and a twin-spired church between expanses of alpine pastures. Bordering the town are the Kitzbuhelerhorn and Wilder Kaiser mountain range – each with a fantastic set of trails and routes to discover on foot or by bike.

Lofty mountains, floral pastures, pine forests and the impressive Grawa waterfall border the village of Neustift, in Tyrol’s Stubai Valley. A typically Austrian resort, you can make yourself at home among its traditional architecture, wander the monastery and head out for some of the country’s most breath-taking nature trails.

One of the top destinations for Alpine activities, Kitz it’s also a feast for the eyes, with a colourful medieval village, stunning lakes and bright, flowery meadows. There’s oodles to do, from hurtling down the Streif to wandering round the posh boutiques - on top of mile after mile of cycling and walking trails.

Igls is a lovely, colourful village perched high on a plateau that overlooks the city of Innsbruck (which is 5km away). Live music concerts and folklore events are put on regularly in the summer months and there are loads of cultural hotspots to explore. The cable car takes you to some fantastic walking and cycling trails around the Patscherkofel and you can take a dip or pedalo in nearby Lake Lans.

Summer in Ischgl is a way more relaxed affair than the raucous scenes of winter - think lazy days by the river and chilled evenings listening to live bands on pub terraces. When it comes to picking up the tempo, the mountain biking is legendary and the hiking, paragliding and white water rafting are pretty good too...

A sunny little village, Pertisau sits on the shores of the incredible Achensee – the largest and deepest lake in the Austrian Tyrol. Bordered by mountains as well, this is a top spot for an active summer holiday. The village itself is lovely, too, and usually hosts live music events in the summer.

Söll rests snugly in a wide valley between the Wilder Kaiser and Hohe Salve peaks. With lush green meadows, alpine dairy farms and chalet-style buildings, the village is a Tyrolean gem that just oozes chocolate-box appeal. Visitors soon fall head-over-heels for the panoramic walks, mountain runs and gnarly bike routes – and to really make it above par, the area’s a haven for golfers.
