Tips / Destination

Austria has a lot to offer. The cities teem with gorgeous Baroque architecture and the rest of the country is littered with charming villages. For nature enthusiasts, there are long, rolling green hills and steep snow-capped mountains. The picturesque scenes from The Sound of Music are real and located throughout the country.

 

The most obvious place to visit is the most populated city, Vienna. This city is the definition of classic European glamour. A quick walk through will explain exactly why. Some of the buildings are made of white marble and gold and green rooftops. This city is a photographer’s dream. There are so many different angles and shots to shoot the city and its buildings. Besides the architecture, Vienna is a haven for lovers of art and culture. Check out the Vienna Opera and the Imperial Suites at Hofburg Palace.

 

Steyr is a hidden city waiting to be discovered. Time has stood still in this medieval city. Walking through these streets is like being transported back in time. Historians, writers and artists rave about this city and the inspiration it invokes simply by existing. Nearby this city is an exhilarating seven-hour route that will take visitors through the Kalkalpen National Park. Travelers will see waterfalls, a chapel and several breathtaking viewpoints.

 

Mozart’s birthplace, Salzburg is an underrated city, but worth the visit. In the summer, the city hosts an annual theater and music festival and in the winter it’s home to many Christmas markets. No matter what time of year you visit, Salzburg is ready to impress visitors.
