Many consider Austria as one Europe’s cultural trendsetters, with a history steeped in musical brilliance and stunning architecture. Not to be forgotten though is the picturesque Alpine scenery which is among the most beautiful in the world.
The capital city of Austria is Vienna, a city that never fails to impress. Clean, friendly and well designed, it is perfect for holidaying, and great roads make it an excellent city to explore with a hire car. While here, you can visit the Museum of Fine Art and Imperial Treasury, and the not to be missed Schloss Schonbrunn, one of the most impressive palaces in Europe. Schloss Schonbrunn features grand architecture, vast gardens, and the oldest zoo in Europe.
Head to Salzburg, where you can visit the birthplace of Mozart, Hellbrunn Castle and Salzburg Cathedral, or perhaps drive your hire car over to Innsbruck and visit the Alpine Zoo or Hofkirche Cathedral. Another Austrian city which is not as well known and definitely worth visiting is Graz, located in the south east. In Graz you will find several impressive castles, the Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II, and several art and theatre-based attractions.
While home to several wonderful cities, Austria also has beautiful scenery and nature. You can visit ancient forests, pristine rivers and lakes, and for the more adventurous the Alps provide some of the best skiing and winter sports worldwide. Austria's engaging physical & cultural beauty makes it an unforgettable European holiday destination.
