A country of mountains, music, art and architecture (of baroque fame!), Austria, at the heart of Europe, is the land of Beethoven and Mozart. Whether it is the picture-perfect monuments of Salzburg, or the strauss waltzes you can hear in urban streets, or strudels with rich creamy coffee (viennois), a trip to Austria will surely invigorate your senses enough to create everlasting memories.

Once the power seat of large multiethnic Austro-Hungarian Empire, Austria is now a truly cosmopolitan country in every sense of the word. With its breathtaking natural beauty, lovely weather, warm people and loads of historic attractions, no wonder, the country attracts hordes of tourists all across the year. However, most people opt to visit Austria during summers as they love to spend their holiday relaxing and rejuvenating in the company of Alps when the weather is at its best. But Austria has a moderate climate throughout the year which makes it easier to plan your vacation anytime of the year.

As far as culture is concerned, the country is a federation and all its nine federal states have a distinct and unique culture and tradition. Standing at Europe's crossroads, the culture is influenced from several sides and that is strongly reflected everywhere.
Austria is as famous for its verdant valleys as it is for its snow-clad mountains and historical buildings. Some of the major attractions include High Mountain National Park, National Park Thayatal, Grossglockner which is the highest peak of Austria, Villgratental valley and several picturesque villages where you can spend some moments in the tranquil and peaceful surroundings. Its not only about scenic beauty, Austria is home to several architectural delights like palaces, grand cathedrals, vintage churches and wonderful monasteries. Some of the notable ones include Schönbrunn Palace, St. Stephen's Cathedral, Mariazell Basilica which is popular pilgrimage destination and Tiergarten Schönbrunn among others. You can also indulge in a host of activities and adventure sports like skiing, snowboarding, cycling and hiking while you are holidaying in Austria.

Talking about shopping, the country is a shopper’s delight with swanky malls, bustling street markets and local shops which sell a variety of goods and other souvenirs. Talking about the food, the local cuisines are delicious and distinctive and Wiener Schnitzel is nothing short of a national dish here. You will be surprised to spot a number of bakeries even in villages and their pastries, breads and other desserts are simply awesome. It has so much to offer to everyone that you will be surely spoilt for choice when you are here.
