Drink in the natural beauty
Austria isn’t just about old style architecture and history – the natural landscapes are stunning too.

Best appreciated from the dizzy heights of a cable car, the spectacular scenery is worth the effort to discover and will stay with your for many years to come.
Another famous Austrian attraction is the plentiful Christmas markets, a must-see for any lover of festive atmosphere.
