For a relatively small-sized country, Austria’s not short of things to do and see. Spanning everything from soaring alpine mountains to elegant imperial cities and an impossibly rich cultural heritage, this country may be bordered by eight other European states, but it has a clear personality and presence of its own, meaning a trip to Austria is always a great idea.
Sitting on the banks of the river Danube, Vienna is an essential stop on any Austria holiday. An architectural marvel, the capital city is a giant museum in its own right, with historic sites such as the Hofburg, Schönbrunn Palace and the gothic Stephansdom Cathedral among its most notable. There’s also the incredible MuseumsQuartier, home to no fewer than 60 cultural institutions, including the magnificent Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien with its lavish interiors, the stand out contemporary mumok Museum of Modern Art and the spectacular Natural History Museum.
Austrian cuisine is just as impressive, and eating and drinking here is a topic that’s taken seriously. Alongside classics such as Wiener schnitzel and Sachertorte chocolate cake, you’ll also discover more modern products, including some wonderful white wines like Grüner Veltliner and Gemischter Satz, which you can sample in the Heuriger, wine taverns dotted across the Austrian countryside.
That aforementioned countryside is also home to some of Europe’s most beautiful landscapes, making Austria a popular destination for skiing in the winter months and hiking and cycling when it’s warmer. But whatever time of year you visit Austria, it won’t be long before you discover the awesome scenery and infectious energy that inspired home-grown composers including Mozart and Haydn, and artists such as Klimt and Schiele. Things are looking bright for Austria’s technology industry, too, with the country fast becoming a startup powerhouse, tech founders no doubt drawn to Austria’s entrepreneur-friendly policies. And when it comes to choosing a hotel in Austria to begin your explorations, you need look no further than the Leonardo Hotel Vienna.
