Nestled in the very heart of the continent, Austria is topographically diverse and historically wealthy. Its diversity enables it to offer just about everything, and with a centuries-old history, it remains one of Europe’s most beloved regions. Its major cities offer settings of grandeur, plus superlatives in scenery and style.
Vienna is an Imperial white-glove metropolis of Strauss waltzes and Opera Balls, while Salzburg’s jewel box setting is a musical mecca tinkling to the strains of Mozart. Austria’s magnificently-sited Alps rival those of neighboring Switzerland, and its castle-topped hills rest above vineyards that rival those of the Rhine.
In a parade of sights, Austria is unmatched for old-world splendor: including architectural treasures, Baroque abbeys, old towns with glockenspiel chimes, and castles fronting mountainous waters. Nowhere else has pastry shops filled with such fabulous assortments, including those famous linzer tortes!
If you are seeking warm weather, best to go between late April and October – Austrian summers, are generally warm, but not too hot. If you want to ski, you can usually count on a good dose of snow from November through April.
This is a wonderful country for outdoor nature based activities, holiday markets and a winter wonderland of festivals and activities on the slopes.
Visitor numbers increase during peak holidays and annual festivals – Vienna attracts crowds over Christmas, New Year and Fasching (the ball season), when the Salzburg Festival attracts visitors in July and August.
