Austria Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 76%, Austria offers a large variety of travel options, ranging from world class outdoor activities, to classic movie icons that have become synonymous with everything that this amazing country has come to offer. At the top of many people's list - Austria's version of Graceland - is a visit to the Sound of Music House in Salzburg. As one of the most popular movies of all time, this residence holds a special place in the heart of any Julie Andrew's fan. After singing the mandatory chorus of "A doe, a doe, a deer, a female deer, a ray, a block of golden sun...", it's time to quicken the heart rate with some spelunking through the Werfen Ice Caves, or white water rafting down the North Johnstone River. For some, no trip to Austria could possibly be complete without making one of the country's classic journeys, such as the Grossglockner Alpine Road or Semmering Railway, which take you through some of the most beautiful and pristine alpine country in the world. Austria is one of those special places that offers a diversity of options that many other countries can only aspire to. But perhaps the best thing about it is the fact that Austria doesn't put on any airs. What you see is what you get, and it's all top notch.
