Austria:
A Fairytale Come to Life

Once a country of emperors and palaces, Austria now combines fascinating history with exciting modern culture and energy. Due to its location in the Alps, Austria has a highly mountainous terrain, a dramatic landscape and oodles of glorious scenery. It is home of the famous Danube River and traditional coffee houses. And while you’ll want to experience all of these things, Austria is so much more. Extraordinary architecture, music, theater, opera, art, rich culture, fabulous museums, historical cities and cool cafes, all contribute to the heart of life in the city. In Vienna, the banks of the river are flanked by gardens, restaurant terraces, promenades and bicycle paths.
