Press release: Vorarlberg: The call of the mountains
Austrian Tourist Authority

Austria delivers more travel fun and more travel value than you would expect. It is a small country, compact, easy to get to know, delightful to see. There is spectacular scenery around every corner - vineyards, ancient castles and venerable abbeys overlooking the Danube, wooded hills rising out of lush farmland, lakes dotted with sailboats and ringed by soaring mountains, Alpine peaks and their icy world of glaciers reaching for the sky.

Thinking of an active sports holiday? Austria has it - swimming, sailing, water skiing; snow skiing year-round; horseback riding, tennis, golf; mountain climbing, white water canoeing, glider flying; hunting and fishing, skeet shooting and archery. 

Hundreds of miles of hiking paths, fitness trails all over. And saunas and massage to loosen up after a vigorous day. 

Enjoy life the leisurely way: at pastry shops, in coffee houses, in beer gardens, in wine taverns. Savour the superb Austrian food which makes every meal a pleasure itself. And relax with the friendly Austrians who genuinely like foreign visitors. Shop for outstanding handcrafted items or native dresses, jackets and hats. Contact us again for help in planning your trip and specific information.

The towns are as varied as the countryside around them: historic cities where archatectural masterpieces from three or four centuries face one another across narrow lanes of sweeping squares, market towns that have barely changed since the Middle Ages, mountain villages with neat little houses and flowers overflowing from wooden balconies.
