One of Europe’s great cultural capitals, Austria is a wonderland of Baroque cities, soaring mountains and crystal lakes. Austria's one-time imperial might can be seen in the splendour of its cities, particularly Vienna, where the skyline is punctuated by soaring churches, opera houses and royal palaces. On street level, you’ll find charming boutiques and cultured cafes, where creamy hot chocolates are served alongside flaky pastries and slices of succulent Sachertorte. After a sojourn in the city, ascend into the Austrian Alps, where postcard-perfect villages are nestled between rugged mountains and glassy lakes.

The original home to alpine skiing, mountain-surrounded Stuben is a gingerbread village of a ski resort with only 100 residents and access to more than 300 kilometres of ski slopes.
The Austro-Hungarian Empire of the Hapsburgs may be gone, but this city by the Danube retains its regal air.
