Overview

A journey through the country’s charming villages and intriguing castles is a trip back in time. Vienna’s incredibly ornate Schönbrunn Palace and Gardens and mysterious Vienna Woods open the door to another century.

Salzburg is home to such classical music masters as Mozart. Its stunning Hellbrunn Palace, with its magical gardens and dancing fountains, and immense Salzburg Alps, offer a timeless peak into the heart and heritage of Europe.

Vacationers can sing, “Do Re Mi” in the city where they filmed the irresistible Sound of Music; while classical music lovers can visit the actual home where Mozart was born. These are just a few of every Austrian citizens’ or visitors’ favorite things.

What To Do

Roam the manicured grounds of Mirabell Palace and Gardens, built in 1606 by prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich for his love. Sound of Music fans should recognize the palace’s great Pegasus Fountain, where Maria and the children dance, and sing, “Do Re Mi.”

Ski at Innsbruck, former home of the Olympics, or any of the gorgeous slopes in the Alps. Stroll through Vienna’s historic buildings and contemporary museums in one of the world’s most expansive cultural complexes, the grand MuseumsQuartier Wien.

Explore Salzburg’s impressive Hohensalzburg Fortress, the largest preserved castle in Central Europe, in this enchanting UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hike, bike or stroll through the country’s charming villages and verdant mountains, meadows and lakes. Take a trip on one of the world’s most famous rivers, the blue Danube, on a romantic waltz back in time.
