Austria — From opulent Vienna and the snowy ski villages of the Tyrolean Alps to the breathtaking resorts of the southern lake district, Austria features a phenomenal array of cultural and natural attractions. Because the country is relatively small, visitors with a week or two (and a few key German phrases) can take in historical sites and venture into the storybook-style countryside.

Why Go

For the stunning Alpine scenery, excellent spa resorts, and a stroll along the Danube in beautiful Vienna.
