Tourist guide Austria
Located in Central Europe, Austria borders Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy, and Slovenia. In other words, it's landlocked and surrounded by plenty of other interesting destinations. Austria is home to spectacular cities and towns, majestic mountain peaks, pristine alpine lakes, a rich and storied history, and an enticing dining scene, and these are just some of the things that make Austria travel so amazing. Moreover, the charm of this destination may lie in its awe-inspiring museums and galleries, its world-class skiing conditions, its breathtaking mountain scenery and especially its preservation of a romantic classical past. But this does not mean that modern Austria has stood back from development. Behind the stunning scenery and antique architecture a vibrant industrial and commercial society goes about its business in the main towns.
In addition, Austria has also made significant progress in becoming an international conference center. According to ICCA’s rankings, Vienna is the champion city for hosting international association meetings. The capital is a popular meetings destination thanks to its absolute central location, professional organization and long history of event providing. Austria's meeting venues can accommodate whatever your requirements are. If you’re looking for something unusual, such as a church, or something more standard, like a conference centre or hotel, Austria has everything on offer.
