Known for everything from mountains to Mahler, Austria welcomes globe-trotters with a wealth of culture, nature and history in this home of the Austrian Alps and the Danube River.
Travelers who want to experience the outdoors will delight in the fact that forests cover two-fifths of the country. In addition to downhill skiing, Austria also boasts national parks and nature preserves for hiking, biking, ice-skating and boating. In Burgenland, Austria, our hotel guests can pedal a draisine (rail-cycle) along abandoned track, pausing at villages, or cool down ice caves in Werfen.
Music is pervasive in the homeland of Haydn and Schubert, including the Salzburg Festival, a musical celebration in Mozart’s birthplace of Salzburg. Art and history buffs will be fascinated in Vienna, home of the Gothic spires of St. Stephen’s Cathedral and museums displaying everything from modern art to ancient Roman artifacts.
Foodies staying in our Austria hotels can savor the reinvigorated local food movement and sample Austrian wine. Salzburg even offers the chance to savor a meal at St. Peter Stiftskeller, reportedly Europe’s oldest restaurant.
Whether searching for a brisk run down the mountain or locales from “The Sound of Music,” guests in our Austria accommodations are sure to find travel gratification.
