Austria vacations 2023 & 2024

Perhaps no other country so effortlessly combines urban sophistication with the rugged outdoors as Austria. Whether it's learning about classical music in Salzburg, exploring the coffeehouse culture of Vienna or exploring the Alpine peaks and glacial lakes of the Salzkammergut region, when you tour Austria you’ll experience the seamless transition between city streets and open-air mountain views.

Our specialists have explored Austria top to bottom and can provide expert recommendations for a vacation in Austria, whether you prefer to catch a show at the Vienna Opera House or take a boat ride around Lake Hallstatt.

Explore Vienna and see the Lipizzaner horses perform inside the Imperial Palace, or follow Mozart’s footsteps through Salzburg. In the mountainous Salzkammergut, you can enjoy the craggy Alpine cliffs, the pastoral green grass and the glassy turquoise lakes while strolling through Saint Wolfgang or exploring the neolithic-era Hallstatt salt mines.
