Austria Vacations

An adventure of mountainous proportions.

Bordered by eight different countries, Austria is an Alpine German-speaking country where magic is bound to happen. As the winter sports capital of Europe, the falling snow of the Austrian Alps sets the perfect scene for travellers seeking adrenaline adventures. When the snow melts in summer, hikers become part of the landscape, moving through alpine valleys, river gorges, and floral meadows on their way to the top.

While the Alps have unparalleled natural beauty, there's much more to Austria than its slopes. Explore the richness of the Eastern Empire in historic cities like Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck, and Graz. Walk the halls of Baroque palaces or visit Mozart's birthplace with classical music rippling through the air. Wind through the Danube River to sprawling vineyards and picturesque villages while sipping a chilled glass of Riesling.

Austria is a fairytale — now is your chance to find out why.

Austria: a breath of fresh air

Imperial palaces, lively après-ski scenes, and carved mountain peaks — Austria has it all. Its reputation goes beyond the beauty of its natural landscapes, and is equally renowned for its architecture and cultural experiences.

The Culture

In Austrian society, formalities and etiquette are key. Small greetings are worth it — it's considered rude to enter a shop without saying Guten Tag (hello) or Auf Wiedersehen (goodbye). When drinking alcohol, don't forget to toast with "prost" or "cheers".

You'll hear German being spoken in the streets, as it's the official language of the country. Austria and its people are unique, so avoid comparing it to Germany. Dialects like Alemannic and Austro-Bavarian are also spoken in some parts of the country. Typical, it isn't hard to find people who speak English.

Roman Catholic is the majority religion in Austria, with smaller followings of Buddhism, Protestantism, Orthodox Christianity, Islam and Hinduism.
