Austria is one of Europe’s foremost cultural destinations with its glorious architecture and the wonderful music of its famous composers such as Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn. The scenery is another reason for visiting this wonderful country with plenty of mountains to hike through in summer and ski over in winter. Austria is also the home of the famous ‘Sound of Music’ movie and you can visit a lot of the places featured in the film by yourself or on an organised tour.
