Home of the waltz, Mozart, the Sound of Music, idyllic Alpine pastures, and baroque churches, Austria is a landlocked country dripping with history, culture, and natural beauty.
Vienna has to be visited, with its imperial palaces, musical heritage, and cafe culture, it's a one of a kind European capital. Soak up the artistic and cultural legacy left by residents like Mozart, Freud, and Beethoven. Wander museums home to classics like Schiele and Klimt and visit the Hofburg Palace. Try schnitzel in the open air market Naschmarkt and take a ride on the Riesenrad Ferris Wheel.
Salzburg cannot be missed for its charming old architecture, plus fans of the movie The Sound Of Music will be thrilled by the familiar locations. Other tourists will prefer quaint Alpine villages like Hallstatt for romance and solitude.
Active outdoor visitors will be thrilled to ski in the mountains of Innsbruck or on Zwölferkopf Mountain. They can also enjoy water sports on Lake Attersee or hike the 100 mile trail overlooking the River Danube.
Whatever your preference you are sure to find something to suit your taste in beautiful Austria.
Spring is beautiful in the country side with wild flowers and beautiful sunny days, but winter is a true wonderland on the streets of Vienna and of course for those seeking ski trails in the snowy mountains.
