Skiing and culture blend blissfully in Austria. Soundtracks of Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss are infused deep into the veins of Austrian capital, Vienna, where heavenly architecture of carved cherubs, flamboyant figureheads and dramatic domes threads through in dramatic fashion. Alluring and romantic, Vienna is quintessential Europe with arts, music and culture overflowing into elegant Parisian-style boulevards. Spring opens a big year, as Vienna marks the 200th anniversary of the city’s ball culture. Museums are whirring up a storm around the 100th anniversary of World War I and the 75-year anniversary of Sigmund Freud. Coffeehouses, originating from Vienna, continue to show the world how to savour coffee and patisseries in a legendary institution.

Beautiful and simple. I road all through Austria on a bus many years ago and all I remember is rolling hill after rolling hill each with a small village in between. Salzburg was quaint: Mozart and the Sound of Music. There were some impressive churches and chapels with ornate stained glass and decoration.

Gorgeous natural settings, the greatest pastries in the world and an eclectic historic background that gives us Mozart, Freud and Hitler--Austria is Europe's center. Austria was as far as the Turks got and was the last outpost of free Europe during the Cold War. Today's Austrian nation is a fragment of what was once the mighty Hapsburg Empire. It's capital, Vienna is one of the grandest in Europe. The Austrian Alps, are a hiker and skier's delight.

Austria is a small and tidy state, with beautiful cities and small towns. Wide forests, parks, great mountains....nature is for sure one of the key elements, together with magnificent buildings, remembering it was once the very heart of a big empire. Any season is perfect to visit it, even though I would choose winter for skiing and Christmas markets and spring and summer to visit the cities. wien is absolutely a fantastic city, but I adore Graz as well, so contemporary, so innovative. sweets are something fantastic, from cakes to chocolate to cream. Austria produces also good wines and beers.

Austria is a magical country. Soaring mountains, turquoise lakes dotted with white swans, castles, chocolate and a rich history of music (from Mozart to the somewhat infamous Van Trapps) all make Austria unique among its European peers. One of my favorite places to go - summer for the hiking and swimming, winter for the skiing and sledding.
