TRAVEL IN AUSTRIA

It may be small but when it comes to attractions, Austria is a proper heavy-hitter, a land of picture postcard landscapes, stunning lakes, vibrant cities, incredible architecture, awe-inspiring mountains and world-class resorts.

Like to take it easy? Take a relaxing stroll through Salzburg old town or a Vienna river cruise. Sports enthusiast? Hit the slopes at Seefeld or St Anton am Arlberg, or grab a bike and tackle the punishing Grossglockner Alpine Road. Culture vulture? Have a night at the Vienna State Opera, or marvel at magnificent St. Stephen's Cathedral.

There's a huge amount to see and do here – so start planning your Austria travel 2016 and get ready to get stuck in.

WHAT TO PACK

what-to-pack

Sunglasses - That Alpine sun can be fierce, especially if you're hitting the slopes in winter. Sunnies are essential.

 

Sensible walking shoes - With such a wealth of museums, palaces and galleries, you're going to be clocking up some serious miles here. Save the high heels for your night at the opera.

 

A camera - Vienna and Salzburg are among the world's most beautiful cities, so photo-ops run at an all-time high here.

 

Swimsuit - Whether it's a summer lake dip or a post-ski hot-tub session, a swimsuit is essential.

 

An adapter plug - Austria uses the European standard 2-pin plug
