The great scenic beauty of Austria is captured in this picturesque guide, traveling from Lake Constance in the west to Lake Neusidler in the east. The country’s natural diversity is outlined, depicting how it ranges from granite and gneiss highlands to the lush foothills of the Alps’ Carpathian Mountains and from the flatlands of the Vienna Basin to the lowlands of the east. Austria’s rich and turbulent history is touched upon and its magnificent architecture is revealed through the impressive monastery of Melk as well as many medieval castles and lavish palaces. The Festspiele in Salzburg and the art collection in Vienna are detailed, demonstrating the grand cultural legacy of the old imperial and royal monarchy.
