Contrary to popular perceptions, Austria is not all about mountains. While the Alps do cover three quarters of the country, the eastern provinces of Lower Austria, the Burgenland and the federal capital of Vienna are more similar to the geography of neighboring Czech Republic and Hungary. This diverse mix of landscapes is packed into a relatively small area in size. Glaciers, meadows, alpine valleys, wooded foothills, gently rolling farmland, vineyards, river gorges, plains and even semi-arid steppes can be found in Austria.
Summer and winter, visitors are attracted to Austria’s mountain scenery. It’s hard to miss the stunning snow-covered peaks and green valleys. Depending on the season, you will find green mountain meadows or white landscapes as far as you can see, but either way, you won’t be disappointed by the wonderful views. The River Danube has created some beautiful valley landscapes where you will find interesting vineyards. To make the image complete, the valley landscapes and hillsides are dotted with countless picturesque villages.
