    Austria is rich in history and has activities for all kinds of travelers.An important country in the history of Europe, today this landlocked nation is known more for its alpine resorts than military prowess. But there’s a lot more to Austria than just skiing, and visitors can experience everything from robust city centers to important historic sites and beautiful hikes in the summer.

    Vienna, the capital city of Austria, is usually the first introduction for new visitors to the country.

Today you can walk back through time and feel the presence of this important era by visiting the Imperial Treasury and nearby Schonbrunn Palace. There’s a lot more to Vienna though than its history and modern visitors will find a vibrant and exciting city with new restaurants, shops and cafes opening almost every day.

    Leaving the capital you will find more pastoral retreats, from the birthplace of Mozart to scenes featured in the classic movie The Sound of Music in Salzburg. This beautiful alpine town is the entrance way to the nearby mountains and the views found around town are some of the best in the country.
