Austria is known for its ornate palace and waltzes, for being the birthplace of Mozart and as the home to the “Sound of Music.” Vienna and Salzburg are two of its most revered cities and popular destinations for many Austria vacations. View the all-encompassing Ringstrasse, the Opera House and the Hofburg with its Imperial Apartments in Vienna. A must-see is Schonbrunn Palace, built by Emperor Leopold in the 18th-century. In Salzburg, visit Mozart’s birthplace and residence, tour the Eagles Nest, and even embark on a “Sound of Music” tour. Both cities are easily connected by daily train service, or travel to neighboring cities for a multi-country tour.
