Austria

Europe

  German, Flemish Currency:  Euro

Austria is a calm and beautiful central European country with some of the continent's most picturesque nature. From the snow-covered peaks of the Tirol valley linking western Austria to Germany and Switzerland to the green hilly pastures of the east Austria's outdoors offer something for every taste. Austrian cities also happen to be some of the most romantic places you could visit. Build in traditional style with strong alpine influences and robust construction to overcome the cold winters, you could travel round Austria itself for weeks! Salzburg, Innsbruck, Graz and of course Vienna are all worth visiting for the architecture, that glass of gluhwein on the street and the compulsory schnitzel in one of a range of fantastic restaurants for dinner.
