Austria offers beautiful medleys of sceneries and experiences. The country’s picture-postcard backdrops range from the dramatic snow-capped peaks of the Tirolean Alps to palatial landmarks by the Danube River that showcase 17th-century gothic and baroque grandeur – think fairy-tale castles on high rocky outcrops. The birthplace to some of the world’s greatest artists in history, Austria’s main cities and charming villages still reverberate today with the classical masterpieces of Mozart and Strauss. 

    After slicing through its layers of rich history, be sure to enjoy Austria’s most passionate offerings, be it coffee or a slice of the treasured Viennese Sachertorte chocolate cake. Experience dynamic arts and culture, discover charming sights and memorable sounds, and be ready for the sweet aftertastes that’ll linger on.
