Austria

Salzburg with fortress

Few countries have so rich an historical heritage as Austria and it is easy to fall in love with the contemporary scene of this modern state.

There is Vienna, Austria’s capital on the Danube, once the centre of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and thus a political, economic and cultural centre throughout history, with wonderful museums, art galleries, palaces, traditional cafes and splendid restaurants.

Trachtenmusik Fuschl

Austria’s present geographical status bears no relation whatever to its glorious past, but blended in suitable proportions modern Austria has a dynamic economy,  wonderful scenery of Lakes and Mountains, good food and wine, a thriving tourist trade and a cared for environment. Come and see for yourself, the Austrians will welcome you at any time of the year.
