Coffee, cake and culture - welcome to Austria.
Whether you want to hike in the alps, visit remarkably well-preserved medieval towns or simply indulge in Vienna's decadent cafe culture, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Austria has to offer.
The rhapsodic beauty of Alpine peaks, idyllic valleys and sparkling lakes has long-enchanted visitors to Austria and engendered a rich cultural output. This is evident on the evocative cobblestoned streets and grand boulevards of Austria's cities, where the sounds of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven fill the air, and magnificent palaces stand shoulder-to-shoulder with modern architectural-masterpieces.
