Austria brings to mind the music of Mozart, proud Lipizzaner horses, the Danube, beautiful mountains and mouth-watering dishes.

This country is rich in museums, churches, castles, palaces, towers, and more architectural buildings worth exploring. You don’t want to miss Vienna, Salzburg, the Danube Valley, or Tyrol.Austria is great for sports enthusiasts, with ski resorts, walking tours, swimming, biking, and more.

It is more affordable, generally, than Paris, Zurich, and Rome, but more than Prague or Budapest.
