Salzburg

Situated to the north of the Alps, Salzburg - Salt Fortress - acquired its name from the salt-carrying barges of the 8th century that travelled along the adjacent Salzach river. You'll discover the birthplace of Mozart and admire the spectacular locations used in 'The Sound of Music'. And experience true local hospitality as you meet the family who run an inn converted from a 200-year-old barn, where they brew three kinds of beer.

Vienna

Austria's capital city is located to the north east of the Alps in the Vienna Basin. Dubbed the 'City of Music' because of the many illustrious composers who’ve worked here, from Strauss and Schoenberg, to Beethoven and  Brahms - the city is also home to a large number of baroque castles, opera houses and gardens. 

You can explore the biggest square in the city, the Am Hof, which dates back to Roman times, or savour the sweet taste of apfelstrudel as you while away the time in one of the thousands of coffee houses. There are also more than a hundred museums in Vienna, and you'll enjoy an exclusive tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, home of the Habsburg's impressive art collection – before the doors open to the public.

Innsbruck

Nestled in the heart of the North Tyrolean Alps, it's no surprise that Innsbruck has twice been chosen to host the Winter Olympics. 

You can unwind in the Karwendel Alpine Park and sample a plethora of cultural highlights including museums, theatres and concerts. Wander the medieval lanes of the charming Aldstadt, where you can take in views of the Wilten Basilica, Golden Roof and Hofburg Palace. Round off your day with a rousing Tyrolean folklore show.
