Voyages Jules Verne

Discover Austria

Austria conjures up images of alpine scenery, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the waltz, Klimt, Freud and extremely stylish cities. Austria’s rich heritage gives every visitor plenty to explore and enjoy, whether you are a history enthusiast, lover of the arts or interested in capturing some of the most breath-taking scenery in Europe.

Lovers of creativity will be spoilt for choice here. The Baroque and Art Nouveau periods produced some exquisite art and architecture by the likes of Egon Schiele and Otto Wagner respectively. There are also many theatres and concert halls from which to appreciate the beauty of Franz Schubert’s music and Johann Strauss’ world-famous waltz.

Austria’s history is set against a mountainous backdrop, with nearly half of the country covered in forest. Austria’s highlights include the chic capital Vienna, its traditional alpine villages and the River Danube.

This important river is an idyllic location from which to tour Austria at a gentle pace. As with all the great waterways of Europe, this vantage point will give you a very different perspective of your surroundings.

Alternatively, you could immerse yourself in the winter wonderland of the Tirol, one of the world’s premier winter destinations because of its fine hotels and dramatic scenery. There is so much to do here, from torchlight walks and horse-drawn sleigh rides to simply appreciating the untold beauty of this place.
