The natural and cultural beauty and variety make Austria a small - in a geographical sense - jewel in the heart of Europe.
There is no other country that has made such enormous musical contributions to the world or had such an enduring influence on the international musical scene.

Austria offers the riches of Europe in the proverbial nutshell: spectacular vistas, Alpine splendor, pulsating nightlife, sophisticated shopping, classical culture and culinary adventure. And not to forget: Austria is the cradle of Alpine skiing - and skiing is a way of life in the country of any skier's dreams. Austria has been a favored travel destination for more than a thousand years and we would like to introduce you to Austria, its Imperial Cities and Alpine Splendor, and possibly whet your appetite to get to know more about it all.
