Austria - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

One of the best things about Austria is that it has sightseeing tours and activities for everybody. Fans of the outdoors will love exploring the country’s alpine summits and skiing down its slopes, while music lovers can get their fix by attending the Bregenzer Festspiele, Salzburg Festival, and other music-related events. Those who love history, arts, and culture, on the other hand, won’t run out of top things to do since there are many museums, galleries, castles, and palaces and for them to explore. And don’t forget the food: if you’re in Vienna, you’ll definitely want to try the traditional dishes, which are usually made of fresh and locally sourced ingredients.

Austria - Sightseeing Tours and Activities


Austria is a country that is rich with history, tradition, beautiful places and activities that are unique to the area. Like its neighbor, Switzerland, it is also a winter sports capital in Europe. However, it is just as popular for summer holidaymakers who want to explore historic sites or hike through the magnificent scenery of the Alps.

 

Sightseeing destinations in Austria

As one of the most popular destinations in Europe, Austria attracts tourists all year round into its lively and colorful cities bustling and spectacular mountain regions. You will have a lot of sightseeing opportunities in this Alpine republic, considering the scenic beauty of its provinces and the tourist spots in its splendid cities, such as the historic capital Vienna and Salzburg, the beautiful birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

As it is predominantly a nation of upland areas and high mountains, with the Eastern Alps occupying a good 60% of its territory, the country will surely offer you some breathtaking and refreshing experiences. The River Danube, which flows through the northern region, also adds to its attractions as a popular destination.

 

Top tour activities in Austria 

Here are some of the best things to do on your trip to this beautiful country: 

  • Visiting Its Famous Cultural, Historical and Natural Attractions - The country is home to a plethora of attractions, from the medieval Burg Hochosterwitz castle to the largest system of ice caves in the world, the Eisriesenwelt (The World of the Ice Giants). Make sure you visit them for a more worthwhile experience. 
  • Skiing - During the ski season, the mountains in the immediate vicinity of the very picturesque Kitzbüheler Horn bustle with skiers from all over the world. You can reach the place by cableways, but you also have the option to climb it from the village of Kitzbühel.
  • Parasailing and Paragliding - Flying will be as simple as it can be with these activities. You will be attended by charming and skilled crew, who can offer you pre-flight instructions and deliver pictures of your flight afterwards.

 

Top tour attractions in Austria

There are many attractions in the country, and these are just some the highlights of these great places.

  • Schonbrunn Palace - This major tourist attraction in Vienna is comparable in grandeur to Versailles.

Its park offers a lot of attractions, including the Privy Garden, the Tiergarten Schönbrunn (the oldest zoo in the world), a marble summerhouse, and a maze and labyrinth.
  • Hohensalzburg Castle - This is one of Europe’s largest and most well-preserved medieval castles. It is strategically located at the top of the Festungsberg Mountain, towering over the city of Salzburg and breathing life into its magnificent skyline. It is also where the “Salzburg Bull”, an organ with more than 200 pipes, is found.
  • Vienna State Opera - This opera house is a stunning work of architecture at the heart of Austria’s capital. It is regarded as the most celebrated opera house of all time, with an orchestra that is recognized all over the world.
