Austria is a wonderfully uncomplicated place to visit: it's in the heart of Europe, most people speak English and there is a spectacular combination of cultural and natural attractions. Austria is one of Europe’s most welcoming and diverse holiday destinations, whatever the time of year, and whatever the purpose of visit. For families, business travelers, or sports enthusiasts, the natural beauty, culturally exciting cities, mouth-watering cuisine and delicious local wines, good value and easy access make Austria travel a first class for city sophisticates and country lovers alike.Vienna is by far the country's largest city. Graz is second in size, followed by Linz , Salzburg , and Innsbruck.

Vienna attracts a major part of tourists, both in summer and winter. Salzburg[ receives about a fifth of tourist overnight stays compared to Vienna, which ranks it 2nd in the summer season. In the winter season, a number of winter sport resorts in western Austria overtake Salzburg in the number of tourist overnight stays: Solde, Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Ischgl, Sankt Anton am Arlberg and Obertauern.

Visits to Austria mostly include trips to Vienna with its Cathedral, its "Heurigen" (wine pubs) and romantic Waltz music events. Worth a visit are Salzburg, birthplace of Mozart, Innsbruck, capital of Tyrol surrounded by the Alps , and the Danube valley with its vineyards, for example the Wachau or Dunkelsteinerwald, which are between Melk and Krems.
