The Alpine Region, home of the Austrian Alps, encompasses the majority of the country, while Hill Country, in Northern Austria, has low rolling hills and forests. Most of the population lives in the Lowlands surrounding the Alps because much of the harsh mountain areas are uninhabitable. However, picturesque villages that support the world class ski industry are found throughout the mountains. Many of the best resorts in Austria are alpine ski resorts, and they offer facilities for nearly every type of winter sport.
The city of Vienna, Austria has always been known for inspiring some of the greatest names in music, and that legacy continues to this day. Beethoven and Mozart lived in this grand city, and the Vienna Boy's Choir is famous the world over. If you prefer more modern music, rest assured many pop stars and underground musicians make a stop in Vienna when on tour. Vienna has dozens of art museums featuring everything from classic works to graphic artists and modern art.
The Danube Valley is just outside of Vienna and is home to historic churches and castles that can be viewed by a boat from the Danube River. The region is also known for its many vineyards and picturesque villages; stop at a traditional wine tavern or one of the many restaurants in the Wachau Valley for a taste of the local cuisine after a day of seeing the sights.
