Austria's tourism business definitely lives up to the stereotypes because of glorious Alpine scenery, massive Habsburg buildings, and the world's favourite musical. However, it is not all bewigged Mozart ensembles and schnitzel; modern Austria boasts some of Europe's most diverse museums and contemporary architecture, not to mention beautiful cities with bars, coffee shops, and clubs that blend current cool with exquisite tradition.

From June to September (summer), there is lots of sunlight and low rainfall, making it ideal for trekking in the highlands and exploring big cities. Winter lasts from November to March, and there is lots of snow, making it ideal for winter sports such as skiing. Because of the festive atmosphere and beautiful landscape, it is also a good time of year to visit some of the smaller villages on the edge of the Alps.
