Vienna is the charming and bustling capital of Austria, and you'll find it packed full of exciting things to see and do. It's one of the major cultural centres of the country, so you'll have no problem finding theatre performances as well as art galleries. The historic buildings are quite impressive as well with the city centre being designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
When you visit Zell am See, you can enjoy an impressive lake that offers fun all year long. Historical sites are available in town with some impressive Romanesque style churches, but most visitors stay around the water for fishing, swimming and boating. During the winter months, you'll also find skiing opportunities around the surrounding mountains, though some parts get snow virtually all year long.
Salzburg is known best for being the birthplace of Mozart, but this historic city has much more to offer in addition to his childhood home, which is now preserved as a museum. You'll also find the Salzburg Festival, a world-renowned event you can attend depending on when you visit. The old town also offers historical buildings and shopping opportunities you won't want to miss out on.
When you visit Hallstatt, you'll be at the home of Austria's historic salt production, which has been a staple of this town since ancient times. You'll also find a fairytale-like appearance here with green hills and tranquil waters surrounding modest historic buildings. In fact, the alluring aesthetic of this town is so effective that China actually created a replica of it.
Innsbruck is best known for its ski resorts and winter sports opportunities, so it's a popular destination for travellers during the colder months. When you visit, you can explore a picturesque alpine gem that's packed full of fun shopping, delicious eateries and a rich history you can see reflected in the buildings themselves. Of course, all of this stands among a background of towering peaks breaching the clouds.
