Last updated: 5 November 2017
Located high in the Alps, the Austrian countryside is one of beautiful crystalline lakes, craggy mountain peaks and fertile green valleys. Railway lines zip along the peaks of the mountains making possible the highest and most scenic of train journeys. In the valley of the Danube tranquil vineyards tempt the visitor.

Magnificent cathedrals with graceful spires and gilt and marble interiors, are the backdrop to imposing works of art that adorn walls and ceilings.
