We’ve teamed up with Ted Kravitz of Sky Sports F1® for his Smart Travel Notebook from the alpine destination of Spielberg, which hosts the Austrian Grand Prix this weekend.

The F1 circus descends on a small town when it heads to Spielberg, so don’t expect to see lots of trendy bars and restaurants if you head for a holiday here. Located in one of the greenest regions of Austria, Spielberg is an ideal location for hiking, mountain biking and winter sports holidays. The area is defined by it’s mountains, clean air and lush green meadows.

Spend your days hiking or riding up to the Tremmelberg watchtower or enjoy the fresh alpine air as you relax by the peaceful Ingeringsee lake.
