Enjoy the Austrian Open in Kitzbuhel
Usually, the major sporting event - often seen as the precursor to the French Open in Paris - takes place in July.
Among the big tennis stars expected at the tournament is the Russian player Nikolai Davydenko, who has so far clinched victory in 13 ATP competitions during his career.

Travel writer Jeremy Skidmore remarked in the Sun: "There are some narrow tracks at the start of several of the peaks [and] the slopes are varied enough to satisfy most levels of skiers and boarders for a week."
