Austria Experiences

  • If you are staying in one of the bustling cities such as Vienna, there is plenty of sightseeing to be doing. Music lovers should pay a visit to Mozarthaus Vienna, where the world famous composer once lived while composing The Marriage of Figaro. History buffs will be keen to see the Imperial Palace, which dates back to the 13th century and houses various museums as well as the offices of the Austrian president. In both Vienna and Salzburg, you can also visit the opera or one the many annual music festivals.
  • If the great outdoors is more your thing, you can take a cycle tour along the Danube or go hiking in the Alps along one of the many marked trails, taking in the majestic scenery that has made Austria famous. Skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports are also prolific and you can find luxury resorts and hotels at Tyrol, Vorarlberg and Salzburg, which offer some of the best slopes in the Alps.
  • Austrian cuisine is a delight and anyone taking an Austria culinary package will be able to enjoy a mix of 5-star restaurants and more traditional Gasthauses. The traditional meals are hearty and generally consist of meat and dumplings. Austrian bread is something to behold and almost every town will have a bakery for you to explore. Austrians also have something of a sweet tooth and many of their desserts are world famous — particularly the Apfelstrudel.
