Austria

Austria is set in the heart of Europe, a country of just over 8 million people. It has a natural beauty from crystal clear lakes to ice capped, rugged peaks to picturesque mountain villages, dense woods and lush pasture land. Austria also offers a complete range of outdoor activities from swimming in the beautiful lakes to a variety of walking trails that cover the harder mountain terrain and easier lake shores.

Austria has an eventful history which is mainly dominated by the rule of the Habsburg dynasty. Their influence can still be seen in many of the buildings in Vienna and Salzburg. Graz's old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was the European Capital of Culture in 2003. The views from the clock tower are worth the walk. Don't miss the farmer's market on Lendplatz and try some of the home-made bread.

Rich in culture, food, architecture, scenery and hospitality, Austria offers a huge choice of holidays throughout the year, from opera and theatre under the stars at Lake Constance to the art and cultural treasures of Innsbruck.

And, if you love walking and activities, Austria's beautiful lakes and mountains - including the breathtaking beauty of the Austrian Alps - will make your stay unforgettable.
