With pride this country calls itself the “Alpine republic” - and there is a reason for it.
Almost the whole of Austria is part of the Alpine region or at least the Alpine foothills. Only the area of Vienna in Lower Austria and Burgenland doesn’t share any mountains. Even if here you won’t find the highest peaks of the Alps, there are plenty of glaciers rising above 3,000 m in Austria.
Especially popular for their mountain ranges and obviously for their first-class ski and hiking areas are the provinces of Tyrol and Salzburg. Vorarlberg and Carinthia boast moreover pristine lakes and waters. Austria as a whole is home to a unique natural scenery and provides high-quality accommodation and tourism services. Nature and culture - these two values have a centuries-long tradition in Austria (pic: the Grossglocker high alpine road, Tyrol).
