Where to Vacation in Austria

The province of Tirol can be described as having a traditional Austrian landscape, with chalets sitting on the foothills of the stunning Alps. A natural vacation element would be skiing, a year-round possibility at the Stubai Glacier, where paths for walkers also entice. The valley where Innsbruck lies has hosted the Winter Olympics, and therefore is a haven for winter sports. Nightlife here includes an array of folk dancing, yodeling, and bands of brass instruments, or check out the club area of the Viaduktbogen district. A key attraction in Innsbruck is the Stadtturm from the 1300’s, which you can climb. Herzog Friedrich Strasse is a famous street, with Baroque-style structures at one end.

The Salzkammergut region stays well within the minds of tourists as a wonderful destination. Mountains and lakes dominate the terrain here, and the range of water sports, walking, and skiing (both downhill and cross-country) are sought-after activities. A prehistoric area is inside the Dachstein ice caves adjacent to Obertraun, where the ice formations can be found to be very large. Notable ceramics and porcelain pieces exist in places such as the Kammerhof Museum.

Salzburg
Province captures the romance of the beautiful landscape containing mountains, castles, and quaint towns, with Salzburg as its capital. Explore salt mines in Hallein and Eisenriesenwelt ice caves in Werfen in this province. In the South part of the province, see the fascinating wildlife and take to the slopes, during your visit to see Austria’s highest, longest, and tallest nature attractions. The composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is highly revered in his home area of Salzburg, with a statue, museum, music academy, and more. Salzburg’s old town has been named on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site list, where Baroque-style spires reach high into the air. Just a couple of miles away is Hellbrunn Palace and Zoo, complete with trick fountains.

Lower Austria holds beauty in the Danube Valley, where in the Wachau section, vineyards and verdant forests span the landscape, and many structures are or bear resemblance to fortresses. In Durnstein, visiting the ruins of the castle Kuenringerburg results in a superior view of the Danube River. A true city of the arts and Austria’s capital, Vienna is proud of its abundance of museums. Of interest is Gustav Klimt’s collection of art nouveau style paintings; Klimt is the most well known painter of the genre. Vienna’s cuisine includes their world-renowned sumptuous cream-filled pastries. Music flows through the veins of Vienna, from the history of some of classical music’s finest composers such as Beethoven and Haydn, to the continuing sounds of the Vienna Boys’ Choir. Fine architecture can be seen throughout Vienna as yet another statement of the importance of art here. Fortunately, you can find lots of charming vacation apartments in Vienna, Austria, right here!

The medieval city of Graz is practically overrun with structures of history.
