Austria is often referred to as one of the best places to live in Europe, and it’s not hard to see why. Remarkably safe and clean, this hotel offers an abundance of affordable culture, natural beauty and elegant Baroque and neoclassical architecture, along with an efficient public transport system.
What To Do in Austria?
There is a wide variety of activities you can do in Austria. Go for a jog in the ski paradises of Kitzbühel and St Anton, or relax with a hot drink in one of Vienna’s famous coffee shops. You can skate on icy lakes in the winter or seek out wildflower meadows on summer hikes.
You can marvel at the intricate church interiors and opulent opulence of former Habsburg palaces, or savor a more understated side of Mitteleuropa culture over a steaming goulash at a rustic country hotel. Or you can go horseback riding through the beautiful woodlands, keep an eye on Rubens, Raphael and Rembrandt and admire the Hundertwasser House in Vienna – a fantastic residential complex that stands out for its vibrant patterns and mismatched colours. Don’t try to compress all of them though.
More than anything else, Austria is a place to relax, stay calm and have fun. Its natural beauty is the result of thousands of years of natural activity, and its great art, architecture and culture have been painstakingly created by many hands over the centuries. These are not landscapes to be hastily ticked off a list; Allow yourself plenty of time to have fun.
