Facts About Austria
Information for Travelers
Austria is a landlocked country in Central Europe with around 8.9 million inhabitants.
Neighboring countries are Germany
and the Czech Republic in the north, Slovakia and Hungary
in the east, Slovenia and Italy
in the south and Switzerland
and Liechtenstein in the west.
One of the smallest countries in Europe, Austria is predominantly a nation of highlands and high mountains, with the Eastern Alps occupying 60% of its territory.
The Danube River runs for about 350 kilometers from west to east through the northern part of the country, increasing its appeal as a tourist destination.
Austria, one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations, attracts tourists year-round, with places to visit in summer and winter.
In fact, with some of the best skiing in Europe, winter is almost as hectic as summer in the country's spectacular mountain regions.
Visitors are attracted as much by the scenic beauty of the provinces of this alpine republic as by splendid cities like Vienna, the historic capital, and the beautiful Salzburg, birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
