Let's Plan Your Travel to Austria

Austria offers everything from spectacular city delights, including rich history and impressive old-world architecture, to breathtaking natural wonders like sparkling alpine lakes and snow-capped mountains. In the capital of Vienna, one of the world’s most beautiful cities, you’ll find endless cafes, with coffee making a distinct and essential part of the culture, along with gothic buildings, fantastic nightlife, a burgeoning arts scene, and, of course many choir and classical music performances. But Vienna isn’t the only destination worth visiting.

Salzburg is another one of Austria’s many enticing places, famous as the birthplace of Mozart and the site where “Sound of Music” was filmed while offering small-town charms and alluring attractions like Mozart’s birthplace which is now a museum focused on the composer’s work and life. The lakeside village of Hallstatt, with colourful homes tucked into the mountains, is one of Austria’s most picturesque oldest settlements, originally founded in 5000 BC for exploiting the area’s salt reserves. Thousands of years of salt mining resulted in the village’s enduring prosperity, which can be seen in its lovely square ringed with ivy-draped buildings.

Innsbruck, which sits high up in the Alps in the Tyrol region with mountains soaring over it, offers stunning vistas and all sorts of outdoor adventure. Visitors can ride the funicular up the slopes, hike scenic trails through the Austrian Alps and enjoy many grand buildings that sit along the Sill River. It’s also home to the magnificent Imperial Palace and four fabulous Christmas Markets, each with their own unique vibe.

Where to visit in Austria

Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Austria.

  • Vienna

    Vienna

    Vienna is a stunningly beautiful city with a rich history. The narrow streets of the Inner City wind through magnificent centuries-old buildings that will make you feel as if you’re stepped back in time, with composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart about walk around the next cobbled bend. Opulent baroque palaces dating from the Habsburg era soar over the city, with musical and artistic masterpieces tucked between endless coffee houses and independent bookstores. Families with children will find plenty for younger ones to enjoy too, including an outstanding zoo and an amusement park.

  • Salzburg

    Salzburg

    The birthplace of Mozart and the city where you can almost hear the “Do-Re-Mi” of the von Trapp Family singers echoing through. The storybook Old Town of Salzburg looks almost as it did when the composer lived here some 250 years ago. Set beside the Salzach River, it’s especially alluring filled with graceful spires and elegant domes, with an impressive clifftop fortress and the towering mountains beyond. Dine on schnitzel and dumplings, wander through the Gothic Festung Hohensalzburg, and enjoy the magical palaces and beautiful gardens, soaking up its atmospheric delights.

  • Innsbruck

    Innsbruck

    The capital of the Tyrol region, Innsbruck is truly a sight to behold with the jagged spires of the Nordkette range so close you can almost touch the rock. Some say it’s a microcosm for Austria, with its medieval Old Town the stuff fairytales are made of, overlooked by a majestic palace and baroque cathedral. Enjoy the charms of a small mountain town with historic sites while outdoor adventures from hiking and mountain biking to skiing await among the spectacular peaks, along with breathtaking views from the cable cars and funiculars.
