Austria. A Journey of Discovery

  • Written by Astrid Mulholland-Licht

Think you know Austria? Visited Vienna, Salzburg and Tirol and wrote about all of those places too? Think twice, let yourself – and your readers – be surprised and embark on a journey to discover Austria's hidden treasures, which are usually just a stone's throw away from its major attractions. And if you don't know Austria at all? Then take the chance to explore the country off the beaten path from the start:

Meet the Friendly Alien in Graz, get up close to Austria's highest peaks in the SalzburgerLand, hike the Green Ring at the Arlberg, mingle with the locals at one of Vienna's Heurigen, marvel at Crystal Clouds near Innsbruck, and enjoy your lunch to the sounds of the world's largest open-air organ in Kufstein.

Our carefully selected itineraries through Austria combine the highlights with the secrets and provide a guideline for both first-timers and seasoned Austria travellers.
