Austria is a largely mountainous landlocked country in south-central Europe. A great part of Austria’s prominence can be attributed to its geographic position. It is at the centre of European traffic along the great Danubian trade route and magnificent Alpine passes. No country waltzes so effortlessly between urban and outdoors as Austria. One day you’re cresting alpine summits, the next you’re swanning around imperial Vienna.
An effortless blend of urban and outdoors.
Austria, along with neighbouring Switzerland, is the winter sports capital of Europe. However, it is just as popular for summer tourists who visit its historic cities and villages and hike in the magnificent scenery of the Alps. While the Alps do cover 3/4 of the country, the Burgenland and the federal capital of Vienna are more similar to the geography of the neighbouring Czech Republic and Hungary. This diverse mix of landscapes is packed into a relatively small area of size. Glaciers, meadows, alpine valleys, wooded foothills, gently rolling farmland, vineyards, river gorges, plains and even semi-arid steppes can be found in Austria.
