Next only to its more popular neighbor, Switzerland, Austria is famous as the winter sports capital of Europe. Strategically located with Italy and Slovenia in the south, Germany and Czech Republic to the north, Lichtenstein and Switzerland to the west and Hungary and Slovakia bordering the east, the home of Mozart, Freud, Strauss and Haydn is endowed with exquisite natural beauty, picture perfect villages, Alpine landscape, gorgeous architecture, fairytale palaces and the ambience of imperial Vienna. From a life- influencing journey through the beautiful Alps, to the moment when the pristine white of the ski slopes overpowers and you feel the immense power of the place. And for all of you who have seen The Sound of Music, Salzburg will be another dream come true. If the music and cultural experience does not stun you then there are the fairytale palaces with detailed baroque architecture. Austria the land that gave us the eternal Christmas Carol, Silent Night two centuries back has more to offer.
