The Anglo-Austrian Society actively promotes social and cultural exchange, and dialogue between the UK and Austria. Our aim is to strengthen Austro-British relations in all aspects of public and cultural life.
We are an independent registered charity formed of people from all backgrounds. The Society enjoys the support of the governments of both Austria and the United Kingdom.
Austria erit in orbe ultima .....loosely translated “there will always be an Austria” was the slogan of Habsburg emperor Friedrich III (1415 – 1493)
Austria has so many faces and what a compelling series of impressions the name evokes.
There is Imperial Vienna, Mozart’s birthplace Salzburg, beautiful Graz and Alpine Innsbruck, the Salzkammergut Lake District, the Tyrol and its wonderful ski resorts, peasant costumes, village brass bands, ceremonies and dancing; the Baroque splendours of Melk, St. Florian and Schönbrunn to name but a few.
There is the Grüner Veltliner wine. Wiener Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel, the hospitality of country inns and idyllic mountain restaurants and last but not least “the Sound of Music” of Mozart, Haydn, Mahler, Schubert , Beethoven and many modern composers
