A rich and varied history, elegant architecture, the smell of tempting pastries wafting from neighborhood cafes...this is Austria!
Cultural icons include Sigmund Freud, Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Trapp Family Singers and "The Sound of Music."
in fact, cannot conjure up Austria without the sound of music - of world-famous composers like Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss
- who left many traces in the musical capitals of Vienna and Salzburg.
As a travel destination, Austria also offers the architectural beauty (not to mention the cafes, food and pastry) of its capital, Vienna; the art, baroque flavor and almost year-round musical festivals of Salzburg; along with some of the world's best skiing on the snow-capped mountains of Innsbruck.
