The beautiful, small, land-locked country of Austria is one that makes an interesting destination for a holiday. Tourists tend to come here for specific reasons because they associate the country with specific things. For example, the city of Salzburg is the birthplace of Mozart and the setting for the film ‘The Sound of Music’, so tourists come to the city to take the tours linked with these things.
Austria has long been considered to be a great place to live and work. The country is relatively safe and clean and has great infrastructure.
Others come to Austria because it is a great place for a skiing holiday with many resorts in the Alps. Popular skiing resorts include Kitzbuhel and St Anton but during the summer these areas of the country are just as popular with tourists as there are opportunities for hiking and enjoying the sunshine.
The country is filled with great tourist attractions such as the old Habsburg palaces and some amazing museums. The city of Vienna has so many cultural attractions that you might find you are spoiled for choice. Remember that opera is popular here – why not pick up a ticket and catch a performance?
Getting around Austria is so easy too, thanks to great public transport and good quality roads. All the major car hire companies have outlets here and in all the main cities. Austria is very fond of its toll roads so make sure that you purchase the discs that will get you through. These are available at many different outlets including newsagents and petrol stations. Regulations you need to be aware of in Austria include driving with your lights on at all times and the wearing of seat belts is compulsory. Make sure that you have a first-aid kit on board too.
Arranging car rental if you are from the EU should not be a problem as your home driving licence will suffice. However, there are other ways of getting around while you are here. Vienna, for example, has a good network of metro services, buses and trams and you can buy tickets in advance. However, you could indulge yourself and opt for a horse-drawn carriage, which is available in a number of places in Austria including Vienna and Salzburg. Travelling from one part of the country to another should not be a problem either as there are good rail links. Journey times from Vienna to places like Innsbruck, Salzburg and Graz are fairly reasonable.
