Austria Towns and Lakes

With its outstandingly beautiful landscapes, glimmering lakes and snow-capped mountains, Austria oozes charm from all sides. From the cobbled city streets of Vienna to the lakeside views of Hallstatt, there is a wealth to see and do within this landlocked East Alpine country. Witness centuries-old architecture, wander through a sea of steeple-studded streets and feast your eyes on lakes and mountains that invite endless exploring. We’re certain you’ll find yourself repeatedly reaching for your camera during your stay here.
