Driving to Austrian ski resorts

Driving to Austria’s ski resorts doesn’t take as long as you might think – set off from Calais early morning and you can be in your chalet or hotel by suppertime, or stop off somewhere mid-way and arrive the next day for lunchtime.

Departing from Folkestone, the Euro Tunnel whisks you across the channel to Calais in France in 35 minutes, and on busy weeks, the trains run four times each hour.

Another option is the Dover to Calais ferry which usually takes about 90 minutes – a nice amount of break time if you’ve already been driving for a few hours, and a chance to stretch your legs and have a change of scene.

Once you’re in Calais, our favourite Austrian self-drive ski resorts take about 10-12 hours to get to (not including stops). Routes usually lead through northeast France, then either southeast through Germany or south to Basel and east through Switzerland.

Approx. toll costs for driving to the Austrian Alps from Calais:

50-60€ (as of 2021)

Approx. fuel costs for driving to the Austrian Alps from Calais:

80-100€ (as of 2021)

Good overnight stops on a drive to the Austrian Alps:

Some drivers like to do the whole trip in one day, while others prefer to add an extra day to the holiday with a stop en-route. The drives to most Austrian ski resorts pass some fabulous cities in France, Switzerland and Germany.

Reims – France’s Champagne region

Strasbourg – the capital of Grand Est (aka Alsace) in NE France

Basel – the Swiss city on the Rhine River (for drives to the Arlberg region or Ischgl)

Zurich – Switzerland’s biggest city (for drives to the Innsbruck region)

Munich – Germany’s capital of Bavaria (for drives to the Salzburg region or Kitzbüheler Alps)
