Welcome to Austria
Austria is stunning. The almost heavenly landscape of hills, snow-capped peaks, and endless expanse of natural beauty was made famous by The Sound of Music. Besides that, it has magical towns of wood and cobblestones that are lost to time and are home to one of the finest composers to have ever lived: Mozart.
