Special attractions

From opera to skiing, stunning scenery and schnitzels, Austria has a very distinct culture. You can jump on a Sound of Music tour in Salzburg and visit the birthplace of Mozart, or just marvel at the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna.

Why not take a day trip to the 11th Century Melk Abbey, or take the car on the climbing, winding roads to the top of the scenic Schloßberg hill and fortress in the Graz?

Heading back to Vienna you can enjoy a meal in world class restaurants and enjoy the collections in one of the many museums, while in Salzburg leave the car and swop it for a horse drawn carriage that will take you through the cobbled streets. Book into a symphony or indulge the shopaholic in you at one of the many boutiques.

For a picture perfect destination head to Innsbruck. Popular with skiers in winter and spring, its medieval lanes and riverside cafés and bars are the perfect place to stop off for a break.

The lakes provide the perfect place to stretch your legs and enjoy the mountain air. Walking, climbing, cycling, water sports and golf are all on offer here.
