Austria

The imperial history of this beautiful country in central Europe has bestowed an idyllic landscape dotted with palaces and fortresses. The stunning mountains in the Alps give protection to immense forests and beautiful lakes.

In the heart of the Alps

The home to the historic Habsburg dynasty combines urban tourism and natural beauty to perfection. The baroque architecture of Vienna reveals the splendid imperial past of what was once one of the most powerful countries in the world. Strolling along the banks of the Danube or taking a boat on the river is an experience you must not miss in Vienna. Other great cities to visit in Austria include Salzburg in the Alps, Graz, the most important university city with a charming historical centre declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, or the elegant city of Innsbruck. Hallstatt is one of the most beautiful towns in Europe, as is the Stubai Valley, an incredible collage of different shades of green.
