Sightseeing

Austria can be justifiably described as a country where stunning Alpine landscape is peppered with magnificent man-made structures. Vienna as the one-time capital of the imperial Hapsburgs and the present capital contains more architectural gems than you could do justice to in one short trip. The Hofburg (Imperial Palace) and surrounding grounds, the Belvedere Palace, the Ringstrasse and the various excellent museums are some of the standard attractions. There are also numerous operas & orchestras including the cherubic Vienna Boys’ Choir and the Staatsoper.

Innsbruck has the some of the best hiking and skiing in the country, and if you fancy a little sunbathing, head for the banks of the Bodensee. Graz is a lovely town with narrow cobbled streets and an interesting past as second city to Vienna. Some of the all-time favourite natural sights in Austria are the flora and fauna at the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Krimml Waterfalls and the Eisriesenwelt ice caves near Werfen.

The hills in the Salzburg area are truly alive with the sound of music, it being the home of both Mozart and the von Trapp family of The Sound of Music fame! There are numerous opportunities in the city to explore the composer’s life and work in detail, including an excellent Mozart museum and the Summer International Festival held in July-August. For some regular, feel-good mush, take the Sound of Music tour that takes you to many of the places the film was shot in, and some of the places that the original von Trapp family inhabited. Salzburg is also home to some of the best Baroque architecture, especially in the old town.

The Hohensalzburg museum, St Peter’s Abbey and the Baroque Hellbrunn Palace with its quirky trick fountains are definitely worth seeing. The area around Salzburg called Salzkammergut has some spectacular scenery due to the presence of several lakes created by glacial movement. The hills in the area are a rich source of salt. The village of Hallstatt , balanced precariously on top of a cliff, is considered one of the most picturesque in the area.

A few hours by bus from Salzburg, just over the border to Germany is the famed Eagle’s Nest – Hitler’s top-secret mountain retreat made immortal by the film ”Where Eagles Dare”. Tours for Eagle’s Nest and the underground salt mines leave daily from Salzburg.

Shopping

Shops are generally open during the week, though on Saturday the timings would vary from shop to shop. They are closed all through Sundays. A VAT (Value Added Tax) is included on all sales. If you are not a citizen of a EU country, you can claim a VAT refund, but the amount to be refunded must be a minimum of EUR 360.

Check out the food and flea markets in Vienna for some outstanding ‘finds’-both domestic and international. Innsbruck is known for sparkling crystals.

Eating Joints

The range of dining options in Austria includes frankfurter stands, quick-lunch stops, cafes, wine taverns, self-service restaurants, small establishments featuring local specialties and expensive restaurants. An inexpensive alternative to a restaurant meal is to combine any of the mouth-watering array of snacks available in Austria with coffee. Prices will of course be higher in a snazzy place and in the bigger cities. A jacket and tie are advisable for the pricey restaurants, but you can dress casually elsewhere.

Entertainment should never be a problem in Austria, especially if one visits during the cultural season – April to September. There is a frenzy of music festivals, open-air concerts and film/theatre festivals in the summer. For more regular nightlife options, try the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ – the bar and pub-filled area around Ruprechtsplatz, Seitenstettengasse, Rabensteig and Salzgries in the central zone near the Danube Canal in Vienna. The town of Graz is also known for its active nightlife.
