Austria is a lovely German-speaking country full of contrasts featuring traditional mountain villages, modern cityscapes, baroque architecture, alpine terrains, lush forests, hillside vineyards and much more. It is home to many treasures, be architectural, natural, cultural or culinary. On top of that, worthy genius such as Mozart, Strauss and Sigmund Freud were among its nationals.
With such a diversity, it is a destination that attracts different types of travellers from all over the world. Some prefer coming during the winter to enjoy the snow in top class mountain resorts such as Lech while others choose to visit the country during the summer to make the most of the festivals, the lively street terrace cafés in the modern cities and the walks across the beautiful valleys.
Vienna, the Danube capital, boasts one of the most beautiful palaces in the world: The Schonbrunn and the Hofburg.Visitors should not miss a few days in the countryside to visit the northern Bohemian Forest, Lake Traun, the Tyrol and its dramatic Alpine sceneries. Urban seekers will enjoy discovering hidden gems like Graz and Linz, provincial capitals which are surprisingly innovative and culturally dynamic.
Visitors are always impressed by the Austrians’ cheerful welcoming. They know perfectly how to combine elegant traditions with a relaxed atmosphere.
