With its rich history, charming villages and traditions, unique architecture, and divine cuisine (who doesn’t love strudel?), Austria is one of the top sightseeing destinations in Europe. It is also one of the few landlocked countries on the continent, but that doesn’t take away from its appeal; after all, Austria has abundant unspoiled lakes to swim in and sail, and plenty of mountains to scale and ski. The country also boasts some of the most experienced guides on the planet (a century ago, mountain guides were hired here and in Switzerland) and they know the land’s heritage and history like no other.
Austria is the winter sports capital of Europe, which means it boasts some of the best ski terrain on the planet. But fun isn’t limited to just the winter here: between hiking, fishing, mountain biking, and more, Austria is just as popular among tourists in the summer. No matter what time of year, and no matter where your interests lie, hiring Austria sightseeing guides is a great way to experience and learn about this beautiful country.
Austria is a sightseeing paradise because it’s home to unique historic sites such as the Hohenwerfen castle, fun activities like the alpine coaster in Mieders (a luge track you zoom down while riding a wheeled cart) and incredible history, including a rich musical culture. (After all, this was the home to several of the greatest composers including Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss.) Whether you’re interested in such famous cities as Vienna (where you can tour the incredible St. Stephen’s Cathedral), Munich (to take in the famous Sound of Music tour), Salzburg (to visit the Hohensalzburg fortress), or the more wild environs of the Alps, a sightseeing guide will ensure you have an incredible time.Read More ...
