Austria – GENERAL INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION

Austria

The charm of Austria lies in its conservation of a romantic classical past. As a former heart of the mighty Hapsburg Empire the country’s imperial inheritance is mainly striking in the impressive buildings and cultural institutions of the Baroque-flavoured Vienna, resplendent with palaces and enchanting churches, welcoming coffeehouses and inns, and extraordinary ballrooms where Strauss waltzes still draw dancers onto the dance floor.

The Alps that stretch west to Switzerland also attract thousands of winter sports lovers every year.
