Whether you're hoping for a chilled-out break or a high-octane adventure holiday, Austria is a destination that can offer everything that you need. One of the most beautiful locations in the world, Austria's stunning mountainous landscape is sensory in the extreme, with the delightful tinkle of cowbells, the scent of wild flowers and the sight of crystal-clear streams leading down to lakes of the deepest blue.

The town and villages of Austria have a charm all of their own. Hotels tend to be family businesses and are all the more welcoming and accommodating because of this. During the summer months, there is a succession of high days and holidays that are celebrated in true Austrian style with dancing and street markets, and lots of locally brewed beer can certainly help the celebrations go with a real swing.

If you opt to visit the Tirol you'll find yourself surrounded on all sides by stunning snowy mountains, verdant green valleys and pretty streams. Visitors to Salzburgerland will be greeted with a profusion of charming traditional villages, epic waterfalls and a variety of great resorts. Lake lovers should head to Salzkammergut, where you will be able to base yourself at one of the several handsome towns that are dotted along the shoreline. It would be a cardinal sin to visit Austria and not make time to visit one or more of its impressive cities. Vienna boasts some stunning architecture and is famous worldwide for its street cafe scene, Salzburg is synonymous with music and Innsbruck is a location that sits picturesquely nestled within the mountains and has to be seen to be believed.

Walking enthusiasts flock to Austria in their droves to make use of the wonderful trails that cover all types of terrain, from mountains to lake shores, woods and valleys. Austria is a wonderful destination for active visitors, with lakes to swim in, mountains to bike down, rapids to raft down and slopes to ski down. Golf is another popular pastime, and there are a number of world-class courses to tee off from.

Austrian is an immensely cultured country, and there is an year-round calendar of events. A sight not to be missed is a traditional Austrian dance performed by lederhosen-garbed performers.

Foodies will appreciate the wonderful Austrian cuisine. The country is famed for its delicious cakes and pastries in particular, with strudel being the treat most synonymous with the region. And a night out in this fabulous country would not be complete without sampling what is perhaps Austria's most famous export - the divine schnapps.
