A tailor-made luxury holiday in Austria is filled with natural wonder and incredible food. Whether you want a hiking adventure through the Alps in summer, or a romantic city break in winter, Austria has the unique opportunity of giving rise to a myriad of cultural and action-packed activities. 

Though Austria may be famous for its winter wonderlands and song-inspiring mountains that are filled with the sound of music, it is most definitely a country of greatness. Despite its small size, it has long had a reputation that delightfully meets expectation. With the immortal composers of Franz Schubert and Wolfgang Mozart, and the ingenious minds of Sigmund Freud and Ludwig Wittgenstein, Austria has paved the way throughout millennia with its brilliance and innovation.

With reminiscent nods to the Habsburg Empire, fingerprints of the past are evident in beautiful Vienna, as the capital is dotted with sugar-cake baroque churches, historic palaces and some truly magnificent gothic masterpieces. 

The mountain scenery is breathtakingly real as you wonder how the roads and railways were cut so precariously into the rocky flanks of the Alps and around the picturesque lakes. However, it is the proximity to the extraordinary natural beauty that makes Austria's scenic city, Salzburg, such a great outdoor destination.  

A few surprises up its sleeve, Austria has some fantastic contemporary art, cutting-edge architecture, and a mouth-wateringly innovative gastronomic scene. Tasting your way through the country, make sure your trip includes a stop in the dark aromas of Vienna’s coffee scene, and in the throng of Salzburg’s first-class restaurants.
