Bordered by the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein, Austria truly finds itself in the heart of Central Europe. The majestic Alps aren’t the only thing soaring in Austria: the cultural landscape of this fascinating country is sky-high, a symphony of music, theater, opera, art and architecture. But it’s Austria’s highly picturesque natural setting that really steals the show. Majestic mountains for skiing, hiking, or just admiring. Pristine lakes for swimming, boating, or just relaxing. Enjoy magnificent imperial palaces, comfortable cafés, and lively Beisl (taverns) in sophisticated cities, with plenty of delicious food and wine to fuel even the most adventurous of endeavours. Have your cake and eat it, too, at any number of traditional Austrian coffeehouses. Waltz through enchanting Vienna. Picnic on the riverbanks of the Danube. Admire Baroque houses, medieval castles, and magnificent alpine views. You just might find that the hills really are alive with the sound of music. But they are definitely filled with some of the most picture-perfect scenes you'll ever see.
