Places to Visit in Austria

Nestled within the majestic Alps, Austria is a destination that seems to have come out of a fairytale book what with idyllic mountainous vistas at every corner and gorgeous heritage monuments at every stop. Add to that the vibrant local markets, the fresh mountain air and the lush verdant countryside, and you have got a winner on your hands. There are all kinds of places to visit in Austria, depending on your inclinations and requirements. Starting from quirky modern art galleries to sky-high mountains, from stunning museums to equally stunning palaces resplendent with the aura of the majestic yesteryears, from the home where Mozart was born and learnt music to luxurious ski resorts, from snow covered national parks to impressive medieval castles, Austria has a lot to offer tourists of any age group, from any walk of life, and with a multitude of preferences.

Among some of the most popular Austrian tourist places to visit, the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, which is an 18th century summer palace and gardens. The Habsburg Palace along with its many museums is another must visit when in Vienna, as is the Belvedere Palace with its notable art collection. Other important places to visit in Vienna includes the St. Stephen's Cathedral, Prater Amusement Park, the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Imperial Crypt, the Tiergarten Schönbrunn Zoo, the Vienna State Opera and a multitude of museums. If you are looking for places to see in Salzburg, then there are several options such as the Hellbrunn Palace that dates back to the 17th century, the Hohensalzburg Castle dating back to the 11th century, the House of Nature science and natural history museum, the beautiful Nonnberg Abbey and the museum that houses the Birthplace of Wolfgang Mozart. As is the norm in Austria, Salzburg is also home to a plethora of interesting museums that can be the perfect place for art and history lovers.

Among the many places to see in Austria, the countryside also warrants a visit thanks to the verdant rolling hills that rub shoulders with the stark beauty of the rugged mountains that surround the small villages. The many lakes, some artificial and some natural, are also a real treat to visit in this otherwise land locked country. Among the various places to see in Austria, the banks of the River Danube are also a popular place to spend some time; the locals treat it as a beach area with sunbathing and beach sports a regular part of it. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road, which is the highest surfaced mountain pass road in the country, is also a must visit. When compiling a list of the best places to visit in Austria, make sure to not miss out on the Krimml Waterfalls, the highest mountainside waterfall of Europe. All of Austria is full of marvelous, almost magical places to visit, and if you are planning a vacation here, try to spend enough time here to really explore the place and get to know it.
