The Heart of Europe

Enjoy the Old World charm of Europe as you explore Austria’s perfect combination of nature, history and culture. You will discover why this is one of the most popular summer and winter holiday destinations in the world. Music plays a key part in their culture and throughout their history. In the past, music-loving Austrians attended concerts performed by local musicians such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Schubert.

The Habsburg Empire created magnificent palaces, stately churches and grand concert halls. Their collections of art and crown jewels have become national treasures. The scenic beauty of Alpine villages and pristine lakes and spectacular mountains will take your breath away. Austria also has some of Europe’s finest skiing. As you plan your adventures, remember that the majority of people are Catholic so most of their shops and attractions will be closed on Sunday.
