TRAVEL GUIDE to AUSTRIA
This is your ultimate travel guide to Austria!
Austria is home to rolling green hills, very good skiing slopes, the wonderful Christmas market in Vienna, Pandorf for shopping lovers, and The Sound of Music. It is also home to my GodDaughter, Rhea. But Austria has so much more than that! I experience Vienna only as a local people, every time I go visiting my GodDaughter.
Austria gave us Mozart and Wienerschnitzel. If you are an outdoor lover, you can paraglide, raft, and hike in every corner of the country. Everything you want, just name it, Australia for sure has it.
I really love the vibe in Vienna, walking down the streets or walking in the park with my Goddaughter. In the evening, the downtown area is full of life with lots of terraces and vibrant music. During the day, you can definitely find a spot along the Danube Delta where to stay. Some amazing spots will give you the impression you are in a vacation spot.
SAY HELLO IN AUSTRIA:
Hallo = Hello (the easiest way of greeting in Austria)
Tschüss = the informal way of saying bye, very popular

Best Time to visit
You can visit Austria all year round. The country offers different scenery and activities, based on the season.
During the spring, there are a few days of rain, but you will have a clear sky most of the period, so this is a great time to wander around Vienna or Hofburg since the tourist season is just beginning.
However, during the fall season, like everywhere in Europe, the mountains become covered in red and golden leaves, the best period for mountain lovers and hikers.
June through August is the high season in Austria. This means lots of tourists and skyrocketed prices This is the reality in Europe during the summer season
This is a wonderful time to visit the lakes in Austria or simply to chill and tan along the Danube Delta in Vienna. Or, you can enjoy the Salzburg Festival, Vienna Festival, and the Rainbow Parade!
WINTER in Austria is more spectacular than Summer. For me, it’s the most spectacular in Europe.
Austria offers a large variety of scenery and winter activities, starting from Skiing or Snowboarding in the Austrian Alps, passing through one of the most famous Christmas markets in Vienna, and enjoying a nice cup of hot wine near the chimney at a stunning ski resort.
