Are you looking for a European destination that is rich in history, culture, and natural beauty? Look no further than Austria, the heart of Europe. From its stunning Alpine scenery to its charming cities and historic landmarks, Austria has something for everyone. Here are some of the top places to visit in Austria:

The Austrian capital, Vienna, is a must-visit destination. Known for its opulent palaces, elegant coffee houses, and classical music scene, Vienna is a city of cultural delights. Take a stroll through the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs, or visit the majestic St. Stephen's Cathedral in the heart of the city. Don't forget to indulge in some of the city's famous Sachertorte, a rich chocolate cake that is a Viennese specialty.

Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart, is a picturesque city nestled in the foothills of the Alps. Its charming old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with narrow streets, colorful buildings, and baroque architecture. Take a walk along the Salzach River, visit the impressive Hohensalzburg Fortress, or take in a performance at the Salzburg Festival, one of Europe's most prestigious classical music events.

Nestled in the heart of the Austrian Alps, Innsbruck is a winter sports paradise. But it's not just for skiers and snowboarders - Innsbruck is a year-round destination with plenty to offer. Take a cable car up to the Nordkette mountain range for spectacular views, visit the Imperial Palace or the Ambras Castle, or explore the charming old town with its colorful houses and historic landmarks.

For a glimpse into Austria's rural charm, visit the picturesque town of Hallstatt. Located in the Salzkammergut region, Hallstatt is famous for its stunning Alpine scenery and its ancient salt mines. Take a boat ride on the Hallstätter See, hike in the nearby mountains, or simply wander the streets of the old town and soak up the relaxed atmosphere.

Located in the south of Austria, Graz is a vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage. Its historic old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with narrow streets, colorful buildings, and stunning architecture. Visit the Schlossberg, a hill overlooking the city, or explore the city's many museums and galleries. And don't miss the chance to taste some of the city's famous pumpkin seed oil, a local specialty.

These are just a few of the many places to visit in Austria. Whether you're interested in history, culture, or nature, Austria has something for everyone. So why not plan your trip today and experience the beauty of this wonderful country for yourself? Happy travels!

Tour: Balkan Kaleidoscope
I just returned from a 2 week tour of the Balkans and thoroughly enjoyed the experience offered by Penguin. Communication leading up to the tour was exceptional. Our itinerary was fast paced and comprehensive and the sights were spectacular. Accommodations were were clean and amenities sufficient for the price paid for the tour. The tour leader, bus driver and the local guides were efficient friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Penguin travel, especially for off the beaten path destinations.


Tour: Iraqi Kurdistan
My recent trip in Iraq organized by Penguin was excellent from start to end. Both Penguin tour guide (Nessi) and the local guide (Fahad) managed all topics efficiently and facilitated an amazing experience for the group. Now I dream about visiting the Northern part of the country, too.


Tour: Socotra Island Adventures (Yemen)
Thanks for everything in terms of your work and help with this trip to Yemen. It was an amazing experience - one I would recommend to almost anyone. By the numbers of people who travelled to the island, it is only going to get more exposure. The local company was very good - so you can have no problems with them at all. I was really lucky though - there were only 2 of us on the trip - and it was a really nice experience. I will continue to work with Penguin in getting ideas for great places to travel.
