If you’re a fan of ‘The Sound of Music’, you’ll recognise many landmarks in this city, as most of it was filmed in Salzburg, and the famed ‘Von Trapp’ family home is now a hotel!
Vienna - Unwind in a quaint cafe in Austria’s capital, Vienna. There is so much to do in this bustling city that a cup of tea and a delectable pastry in the afternoon (and morning!) will definitely be necessary. Vienna holds more than 200 elegant balls each year, where you can waltz the night away to a host of Austrian-born composers such as Strauss, Mozart, and Zemlinsky. Vienna also maintains many art galleries, so if your ears need a break, head down to the Kunsthistorisches’ collection of lovely old paintings for some peace and quiet.
Innsbruck - Dubbed the ‘Capital of the Alps’, Innsbruck, Austria, translates to ‘Bridge over the Inn’. An all weather holiday destination, Innsbruck offers city adventures and mountain escapades. Traditional, yet cosmopolitan, it remains a favourite of tourists for years! Located in the region of Tirol, there is plenty to do besides skiing. Visit one of Innsbruck’s many cathedrals and museums, and the Alpenzoo, featuring many species of wild birds, bears, and beavers, as well as dedicated enthusiasm to the ‘Save the Bees’ campaign, there is fun for the whole family.
Salzkammergut - Cruise along the lake of Salzkammergut, Austria. A beautifully romantic town, it is filled with lovely clean lakes, lush hills, and breathtaking mountains. Lovers of the film ‘The Sound of Music’ will also recognise parts of this resort, as it was featured in the movie plenty of times. If you’re a true fan, visit all the famous landmarks from the film across Salzkammergut and Salzburg, and maybe recreate a few of the scenes! Be sure to book a spa treatment in this relaxing town, and experience the world standing still for as long as you’re there.
St Anton am Arlberg - Take to the slopes in St Anton am Arlberg, largely regarded as the top ski resort in Austria! Located in Tyrol, this resort has varying levels of slopes for even the most skilled, and beginner level skier, making it perfect for everyone.
