Wild camping in Austria
Basically, wild camping is prohibited throughout Austria and can be punished with heavy fines. As each province has its own camping laws, you really have to watch out here, especially in Tyrol, Lower Austria, Vienna, Burgenland and Carinthia.
However, wild camping is permitted throughout Austria - with the exception of Tyrol - if you obtain permission from the landowner.

1 thought on “Wo darf ich mit dem Wohnmobil in Österreich übernachten?”
We recently got a motorhome and were faced with the problem of where to camp in Austria. I'm happy to do without campsites, I can just stay at home in the garden of our terraced house. Through your app, we really came across some very nice places and farmers - every time a very special stay and no place is comparable to another.
