Austria is a Central European country at the crossroads of Europe. It is bordered by eight other countries: Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Italy, and the Czech Republic. Its proximity to these other countries makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations for European travelers.
Austria is a hotspot for skiers and sightseers. Whether you come to tackle black diamond runs, visit the grand castles and cathedrals, or hike through the picturesque Alps, you're sure to be charmed by your surroundings.
Be sure to order Wienerschnitzel for dinner and Apfelstrudel for desert at a traditional Austrian restaurant and wash it down with a glass of local wine or beer. If you need a sweet treat while shopping or sightseeing, try a Mozartkugel - a chocolate ball with marzipan filling.
