Join me for a trip to Austria! Located in Central Europe, Austria is a federal republic and a landlocked country of over 8.7 million people. Its terrain is very mountainous as it lies within the Alps. The majority of the population speaks German.
Our first stop was in Vienna. Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria and is its cultural, economic, and political centre. While in Vienna, we visited The Belvedere, a historic building complex that consists of two Baroque palaces (the Upper and Lower Belvedere), the Orangery, and the Palace Stables. It houses the Belvedere museum. The grounds are set on a gentle gradient and include decorative tiered fountains and cascades, Baroque sculptures, and majestic wrought iron gates. The Belvedere museum houses the greatest collection of Austrian art dating from the Middle Ages to the present day, complemented by the works of international artists.
Our next stop was at the Schönbrunn Palace, a former imperial summer residence of the Habsburg monarchs and is located in Vienna. The 1,441-room Baroque palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historical monuments in the country. It was built roughly 300 years ago.
We then drove to the city of Salzburg, known for its salt mines. Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria. The “Old Town” is internationally renowned for its baroque architecture and is one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps. It was the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In the mid‑20th century, the city was the setting for the musical film The Sound of Music. We also visited the old Hallein Salt Mine, an underground salt mine that has been worked for over 7000 years. We toured the mine and rode down on wood shafts just like the miners did centuries ago.
We then visited Mirabell Palace, a historical building in the city of Salzburg. The palace with its gardens is a listed cultural heritage monument. We were able to enjoy a Vivaldi and Mozart concert in The Marble Hall of the Palace. In its glory days, the Mozart family performed here for Salzburg´s royalty.
The highest point in Austria is The Grossglockner mountain, which stands 3798 metres high and is the highest mountain in the Alps east of the Brenner Pass. We enjoyed a scenic car ride on the High Alpine Road. It’s one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country and receives 270 000 vehicles every year.
