As with many European countries, size is not an issue. Austria may be small, but as a travel destination it's filled with sights and attractions. Just think of its picturesque Alpine vistas, quaint villages, world-class skiing and rich cultural heritage. From a cheese exploration in the Bregenzerwald to sampling apfelstrudel in Styria, and from a stay in a charming Pension to a romantic trek that leads through Salzburg and Vienna, the birthplace of Mozart and Schubert is a year-round traveler's delight.
A GOURMET AFFAIR
Long Table of the Capital of Culinary Delights
Known as the gastronomic mecca of Austria, Graz is a dream destination for food connoisseurs. The area is home to many vineyards, vegetable farms and gourmet restaurants, as well as popular annual events such as the Long Table of the Capital of Culinary Delights. During late summer in Graz's main square, guests are seated at elegant tables to enjoy a five-course meal created by local chefs and paired with regional wines. Live entertainment and the surrounding historic architecture make the feast all the more memorable.
