Things to do in Austria

Indulge in Vienna’s baroque beauty and take in the breathtaking panorama that Austria’s beautiful lakes and landscapes create. For a walk down memory lane, visit Salzburg’s old city, Altstadt, which boasts its very own fortress or explore the creepy historical cemeteries and maze like catacombs in St Peter’s Abbey if you dare. The city has something for everyone so you will be entertained during your visit.

Austria boasts some of the most beautiful lakes in Europe so if you are an enthusiastic photographer, be prepared to run out of batteries in your camera/cell phone. Known as the Riveria, the lakes of Carinthia for instance are a tourist’s paradise. In fact, one of the things to do in Austria is to take a cool and relaxing dip in one of its many pristine lakes. You will feel your worries melt away as you float on the surface with not a care in the world.

After a refreshing natural bath, listen to Mozart during the Salzburg Festival. If you time your trip right, you can experience the unique celebration that features performances by a number of actors, singers, operas and classical orchestras. The breathtaking baroque backdrop that the Cathedral Square provides only adds to the charm of the entire festival. That will be one of your favorite things to do in Austria.
