Europe's alpine heartland

Austria tailor-made holidays


Prosperous and centrally located at the heart of Europe, Austria has much to offer. Dominated by the Alps, it has superb summer trekking and a well-developed winter sports scene. Grossglockner, in Carinthia, is the highest mountain and flanks the mighty Pasterze Glacier.

Impressive urban architecture makes the historic cities worth visiting, whilst a world-class musical tradition provides the soundtrack for any visit.

The capital Vienna is strewn with impressive buildings, including Schloss Schonbrunn, which rivals Versailles. Music, art and architecture peak in Baroque Salzburg, where Mozart was born; an annual festival commemorates this. Innsbruck has a fascinating history and an impressive setting, surrounded by snow-capped summits whilst Linz is famous for its fifteenth century castle and churches.
