Linz – Capital of Upper Austria The Landstrasse runs through the heart of Linz, past narrow, idyllic lanes and through the attractive Baroque main square. Just a few steps away is the Neuer Dom, Austria‘s largest and second tallest church. The banks of the Danube, however, are quite different, scoring points for their modern architecture. On one bank the Ars Electronica invites you to explore the world of multi-media experiments, and on the other the Lentos Museum opens the doors to 19th and 20th century art.
Czech Republic Germany
Klagenfurt – Capital of Carinthia Klagenfurt is nestled on the scenic banks of the Lake Wörthersee, one of the most popular bathing lakes in Carinthia, and has been honoured many times for its historic town centre, culture and sights. The arcaded walkways, passages and courtyards are now home to boutiques, bars and beer gardens, which couple with the Mediterranean climate and give the city its unique feel. Klagenfurt‘s emblem, the stone figure of the Lindwurm on Neuer Platz, acts as a reminder of the legend surrounding the city‘s beginnings. Bregenz – Capital of Vorarlberg The ancient Romans settled in Bregenz more than 2000 years ago. Today, the townscape is fashioned around its medieval town centre and the Baroque St. Martins Tower with its imposing onion dome. Nevertheless, Bregenz is also a mecca for modern architecture, and the Kunsthaus Bregenz on the shores of Lake Constance is possibly the most impressive example. The lake also plays host to the annual Bregenz Festival, which has established itself as a cherished cultural attraction amongst music lovers throughout the world with its extraordinary floating stage. Eisenstadt – Capital of Burgenland Those who venture to Eisenstadt, the capital of Burgenland, will discover that there is one musician is present at every turn: Joseph Haydn.From 1761, Haydn was bandmaster to the Esterházy court for 40 years. Esterházy Palace is a major attraction with its stately halls that host numerous concerts. There is also the International Haydn Festival which is equally renowned. St. Pölten – Capital of Lower Austria The youngest provincial capital boasts a long historical tradition. Its municipal charter goes back to the 12th century, but St. Pölten really experienced its heyday in the 17th century. It possesses several delightful old town squares – the Herrenplatz, Rathausplatz and Riemerplatz – adorned with beautiful Baroque and Jugendstil facades.
Cathedral as well as the lovely statue-lined Charles Bridge. Prague – Vienna, Austria A scenic ride through the countryside takes you from Prague into the grand city of Vienna, the former capital of the AustroHungarian Empire. Begin with a visit to Schönbrunn Palace, the summer retreat of the Habsburg dynasty for more than 200 years, before continuing through Vienna’s city centre, visiting the gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Along the way, behold the beautiful architecture, scenic parks and gothic spires that fill the city. Vienna – Budapest, Hungary This morning your journey continues to Budapest, the „Queen of the Danube“, truly one of the world‘s most beautiful cities. Upon arrival, an informative local expert
introduces you to the area. First, visit the Matthias Church, site of many coronations of kings. Next, visit the Fisherman’s Bastion with its white walls, towers and arcades for spectacular views. Continue to historic Old Buda and Gellert Hill, followed by the Parliament. Budapest – Szentendre –Visegrad – Budapest Begin your day with a visit to the beautiful baroque town of Szentendre and the former Renaissance capital of Visegrad for a magnificent view of the Danube Bend and the Borzsony Mountains. Travel back in time with a visit to a 14th-century castle. Then, enjoy a special Renaissancestyle dinner at the castle restaurant and re-enact the days of medieval times. Complete with wine and music, this highlight will end your fascinating cultural journey.
the Orient to the Occident and later in the opposite direction. Numerous historical and art monuments testify to the rich and varied history that took place here: ancient excavation sites, medieval towns, monasteries and castles, baroque abbeys, palaces and residences, and modern museums of every style of art. The itinerary takes the traveller from Regensburg to Passau and Linz, makes its way through the picturesque Strudengau and the narrow Nibelungengau with Lubegg and Artstetten palaces. This section of the Danube is rightly called „the region of abbeys and pilgrimages.“ Melk offers its majestic Benedictine abbey and opens the doors to the Wachau valley: ending at Krems, it is one of the most
beautiful natural sights in the world and is part of UNESCO‘S World Cultural and Natural Heritage. A relaxing stop might be made in one of the lovely towns along the Danube, like Aggsbach, Spitz and Weissenkirchen. The Dürnstein Ruins remind you of the English king Richard Lionheart, who was kept captive here during the twelfth century. From Krems, you continue via Tulln to Vienna, the centre of the Habsburg Empire and of the former imperial-royal monarchy. Imperial splendour can be imbibed here: the Imperial Palace, St. Stephen‘s Cathedral, Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere Palace, the many museums and the numerous aristocratic mansions along the Ring Boulevard make Vienna one of the most important cultural capitals in Europe.
Starting from Salzburg, the road leads you through the provinces of Upper Austria and Lower Austria to the capital Vienna. In true romantic style, the road also takes you to some highly emotional and even fateful places. In Bad Ischl, for example, Emperor Franz Joseph got engaged to Empress Sisi, and years later he met her here for the last time before she was murdered. Several bathing lakes along the road that winds through Salzkammergut radiate a unique romantic atmosphere. Lake Traunsee is popular for wedding celebrations, especially at Seeschloss Ort Castle, located on an idyllic island and hosting weddings that only be found in fairytales. The Salzkammergut, known as the Austrian Lake District, is in fact said to be one of the most beautiful areas in Austria, with brea-
thtaking mountain scenery and deep blue lakes. The charming village of Hallstatt located on Lake Hallstatt is even a member of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Apart from picturesque scenery, the Romantic Road passes numerous cultural highlights. Once it reaches the Danube, the road gets to one of Europe’s most beautiful river valleys – the Wachau. Here, at the so-called Schlögener Schlinge, the river takes an almost 360° turn and mystic ruins and castles provide the romantic atmosphere.
Germany St. Wolfgang Salzburg
Melk Krems Bad Ischl
The final stop on your tour is Vienna. The capital of Austria is bubbling with temptations. It begins with sweet treats at Demel and ends with an unbelievably charming walk around the gardens of Schönbrunn Palace, the residence of former emperors.
Along the Danube The journey along the Danube starts in Passau, a charming town on the border between Austria and Germany. The first attraction along the way is the „Donauschlinge“ near Schlögen. From here it is past Wilhering Monastery to Linz where the road leaves the Danube for a short diversion to St. Florian, through the ancient Roman town of Enns and on towards Steyr. The route takes you to the start of the Wachau, resplendent with monasteries and ruins towering high above the Danube. From the Wachau you travel to Vienna, before following the Danube eastwards towards Hainburg, a small town on the edge of the DonauAuen National Park. It is here that the river leaves Austrian territory once again and your Danube tour ends.
The South Styrian Wine Route The South Styrian wine route, which in part runs along the border to Slovenia, is lined with vineyards that are especially pleasant to visit in autumn, when the countryside is at its most colourful. The route, in total more than 25km long, leads through the heart of Styria’s biggest wine growing region where some of Austria’s best white wines are grown. In the picturesque villages along the route you will also find some of Austria’s best chefs. At the Sattlerhof, Willi Sattler produces wines that rank among the best in the country and in the attached restaurant his brother serves homemade cuisine at a high level. For those interested in the history of wine making, there are wine museums in Kitzeck and Gamlitz that show the development of the wine production.
Vienna – the City of Music With its successful blend of imperial tradition and contemporary creativity, the Austrian capital is nowadays a vibrant cultural metropolis in the heart of Europe. Vienna was the politically powerful and geographical centre of Europe for 500 years, just as long as the rule of the Habsburgs. With their palaces, government buildings and parks they left a substantial
splendor await you around every corner. A walk along the city’s showpiece boulevard is a sightseeing experience to remember as the Ring is lined with grand buildings and beautiful parks on both sides. Vienna also boasts world-renowned museums, art collections and works of art like the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien (Museum of Fine Arts), the Belvedere Palace, the Leopold Museum in the MuseumsQuartier and the Albertina. Vienna – City of Music Vienna, as a city of music, enjoys a paramount reputation around the world. No other city has been home to so many composers of international renown. Some, such as Schubert, Strauss, Schoenberg and Berg were born there, others, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Brahms and Mahler chose to live there. It boasts one of the world’s finest orchestras – the Vienna Philharmonic – as well as the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and several other orchestras and ensembles of note. The Vienna State Opera is one of the world’s leading opera houses, and is joined by three more in the city. In Vienna, the ball season reaches its peak in January and February. The old tradition of carnival balls continues to thrive in the city. Each year more than 450 balls take place in Vienna. The Opera Ball at the Vienna State Opera is legendary.
Lifestyle – Imperial Nostalgia & Contemporary Trends Events such as the Life Ball and the Festival of Electronic Music convey a lifestyle that appeals to the modern tourist. During the summer, Viennese and tourists alike throng not only to Prater park with the famous Giant Ferris Wheel, but also to the Copa Cagrana on Danube Island – which boasts the Danube Island Festival, Europe’s largest free open-air party in June. From mid-November to Christmas, Vienna’s prettiest squares transform into magical Christmas markets. The aroma of Christmas bakery items and hot punch creates a pre-Christmas atmosphere. Viennese Cuisine Wiener Schnitzel, Tafelspitz, Sacher Torte and Kaiserschmarren: these are just a few of the instantly recognizable and worldfamous staples of Viennese cuisine. Each dish perfectly illustrates how different culinary influences come together in the city. Vienna is the only metropolis in the world that grows enough wine within city limits to be worth mentioning. Wine is an integral part of Vienna. The wine tavern districts on the gentle hillsides of the Vienna Woods extend an invitation to seriously “study” Vienna and its wines.

With their ceremonial furnishings, the magnificent rooms are a vivid reminder of the princely past and life at the court.

A Glimpse behind the Scenes Vienna is the world’s capital of music. One of its most sought-after “export goods” is the Viennese Waltz, the dance in three quarter time that waltz king Johann Strauss triumphantly took across the globe. Being able to dance a waltz is a skill that everybody should master before going to a ball in Vienna. So what could be more logical than learning this lilting dance where it is at home – in the Austrian capital? “waltz in vienna. the boutique dance school” stands for exclusive, tailor-made & personal ballroom dance tuitions for groups, individual couples and single persons, and unique Grand Ballroom & After Dinner dance shows for magnificent Balls, Gala Dinners and Social Events in Vienna.

Palace & Gardens of Schönbrunn Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the imperial family, is one of Europe’s most impressive Baroque palace complexes. The land had been in the possession of the Habsburgs since 1569, when the wife of Emperor Ferdinand II. had a summer residence built there in 1642, which she called “Schönbrunn”. The palace and garden complex built here from 1696, after the Turkish occupation, was redesigned from the ground up by Maria Theresia after 1743. For most of the year, the Habsburgs resided in the countless chambers.

MuseumsQuartier Wien As the largest Habsburg residential palace, the Albertina dominates the southern tip of the Imperial Palace on one of the last remaining fortress walls in Vienna. It houses the world’s largest collection of graphic art, spanning 60,000 drawings, some million prints and an extensive collection of photographic and architectural material. Major exhibitions take place here, and the museum’s own collection is spectacular, with names such as Matisse, Renoir and Miro. The staterooms of the largest Habsburg residential palace were once lived in by the daughter of Empress Maria Theresia, Archduchess Marie-Christine. The staterooms in shining yellow, green and turquoise, partly furnished with original furniture, transport visitors back to the time of their inhabitants.
Belvedere Palace Home to the world’s largest Gustav Klimt collection – including Gustav Klimt’s legendary painting “The Kiss” – the Belvedere Museum is one of the most striking and significant museums in the world.

THEATER AN DER WIEN
The Theater an der Wien with its rich tradition ranks among the most beautiful theatres in Vienna. It was built in 1801 in the spirit of Mozart by Emanuel Schikaneder, the librettist of “The Magic Flute”. In January of 2006 the Theater an der Wien was reopened as an opera house and is now staging excellent performances all around the year. Operas from the baroque period to the present days are produced on the highest artistically standards. Some of the world’s leading maestri and international stars guarantee performances of the highest quality.
The theatre was built as the Vienna City theatre in 1871. Due to a fire the building was destroyed and was afterwards bought by Anton Ronacher who turned it into a variety theatre. In 1987 the “Etablissement Ronacher” became part of the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien. Since then there was shown a wide range of shows from CATS to ChICAgO as well as touring productions. To ensure that it meets the requirements of modern musical production it had to be completely refurbished. The great re-opening was in 2008. At present the international hit-Musical LEgALLy BLOnDE is very successfully performed at the Ronacher.
The Raimund Theater is one of the most traditional stages in the theatre metropolis Vienna. After decades of theatre and oper-etta performances, in 1987 the theatre became part of the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien. Since that time it enhances prestige and importance in the international musical scene. The Vereinigte Bühnen Wien have performed many international productions such as PhAnTOM OF ThE OPERA, ROMEO & JuLIET, REBECCA and RuDOLF - AFFAIRE MAyERLIng.

Salzburg – the City of Mozart The city of Salzburg, delightfully located on the sholls of River Salzach, owes its fame to the composer W. A. Mozart, the musical „Sound of Music“, and the Salzburg Festival. Although Salzburg may appear small at first glance, its cultural offerings are immense.

Salzburg’s most famous son The Mozart family lived on the third floor of the Hagenauer House at Getreidegasse 9 for 26 years, from 1747 to 1773. The celebrated composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was born here on January 27, 1756 and spent the first 17 years of his life here. No other place makes the person behind the artist Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his music as palpable as his birthplace. Mozart’s Residence was reconstructed after being destroyed during World War II and was opened to the public in 1996. The biographies of the family members and the authentic impressions of everyday family life fill the house to this day with their spirit and allow visitors to experience Mozart anew.
Be a guest of Mozart! Dine at the oldest restaurant in Europe, Stiftskeller St. Peter, while listening to the music of Mozart. Enjoy a delicious 3-course candlelit dinner, prepared according to traditional recipes from the 17th and 18th centuries, while local opera singers and musicians perform some of Mozart’s finest work.

Mozart are performed in candlelight by local musicians in historical costumes including two opera singers and musicians performing “A little night melody” as well as with arias and duets from operas “Don Giovanni”, “Le Nozze di Figaro” and “The Magic Flute”. Allow yourself to be whisked off into a world of enchantment, be a guest of Mozart!

The Mozart City Tour is one of Salzburg’s “classic” tours and includes all of the city’s major attractions as well as a good overview of the city’s architecture and history. Retracing the history of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart you will learn interesting facts about the city’s most famous son.

The highlight of the tour is the visit of Mozart’s Residence where you will learn interesting details about the life of the Mozart familiy. The tour will also take you to Leopoldskron Palace and Frohnburg Palace – both locations used in the movie “The Sound of Music”.
Every year in summer Salzburg is a famous destination for music fans from all over the world. The Salzburg Festival – a prominent festival of music and drama – takes place from the end of July to the end of August and features numerous concerts, operas, operettas, plays and readings. The most classic play of the Salzburg Festival is the “Jedermann”, which is played on the Domplatz in front of the cathedral to incorporate the façade of the Salzburger Dom into the play. Many famous Austrian and German theatre actors played the main characters of the “Jedermann”. The play itself was written by Hugo von Hoffmannsthal between 1903 and 1911 and it is based on similar “moral plays” from the 16th century.
Salzburg’s most visible icon is the mighty 900-year-old cliff-top Hohensalzburg Fortress, one of the biggest and best preserved in Europe. It was built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard and considerably enlarged by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495–1519). The fortress can easily be reached by funicular railway departing from the Festungsgasse. Highlights of a visit include the Golden Hall, where lavish banquets were once held, with a gold-studded ceiling imitating a starry night sky, the medieval princes’ apartments and the Fortress Museum. The Golden Hall is the backdrop for year-round Festungskonzerte (Fortress Concerts), which often focus on Mozart’s works.
In 1612 commissioned by Salzburg’s Prince Archbishop Markus Sittikus von Hohenems, an architectural masterpiece was created just south of the city that remains one of the most magnificent Renaissance buildings north of the Alps: the Lustschloss of Hellbrunn with its spacious park and its unique trick fountains. With its ballrooms, the enchanting gardens and the unique trick fountains, the palace was primarily used as the site of luxurious celebrations and festivities, spectacular events and cultural highlights. Today visitors come for meetings, seminars and glamorous social events. And perhaps the reason that the palace has become a popular venue for international events is that it was built for that very purpose almost 400 years ago!

World Heritage & National Parks As the only region along the entire Danube river, the Wachau has received the prestigious award of UNESCO World Heritage. The meandering river valley, deeply cut at first, then gradually widening, is truly stunning. Steep rocks alternate with floodplain forests. Its banks and slopes are home to sun kissed grapevine terraces, built over centuries and meticulously preserved. In between, you will find orchards and picturesque small towns, awe-inspiring churches, castles and ruins. Situated between the European capitals Vienna and Bratislava, the Donau-Auen National Park preserves the last remaining major wetlands environment in Central Europe. Here, the Danube is still free flowing; it is the lifeline of the National Park. The dynamic rise and fall of water levels – sometimes up to 7 meters – means that the wetlands landscape is constantly recreated and reformed. In this way, the flow of the Danube creates habitats for a large number of plants and animals, some of which are rare species. Monasteries, churches, castles & palaces Many archaeological treasures dating back to the Romantic Age, the Gothic Age or the Renaissance, have been meticulously preserved over the centuries. Monasteries, churches, basilicas and charterhouses are remarkable witnesses to the high culture of sacred artwork. The Baroque Age has left a lasting impression on Austria; one of
the most outstanding examples being the abbey of Melk. Follow the traces of the emperor, stroll through magnificent palaces and historic gardens. Alternatively, you can learn about former strongholds, noble and less noble knights. Following the Danube between Ybbs and Hainburg, you will encounter countless palaces, castles and ruins. Most of these ruins are freely accessible all year. Lower Austrian Wine & Wine Route With 30,000 hectares of vineyards Lower Austria is Austria’s biggest wine producing region.

The turquoise-coloured Lake Attersee, is internationally famed for its excellent sailing conditions.

The early start is worth it, for when you reach the top you are treated to spectacular views of the city, still shaking off its sleep.

What to see in Budapest? As the keeper of several major attractions in Europe – the largest thermal water system in the world, the first Underground Railroad on the continent, the third largest Parliament building in the world and the largest synagogue in Europe – Budapest has no shortage of things to see. Budapest possesses Roman ruins, still operating Turkish baths, the heritage of the Gothic and Baroque periods, as well as architectural masterpieces of the Art Nouveau and Bauhaus in close proximity. In addition, the city boasts two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Banks of the Danube, and Andrássy Avenue. Eat, Drink & Be Magyar There is a lot more to Hungarian food than goulash and it remains one of the most sophisticated styles of cooking in Europe. Magyars even go so far as to say there are three essential world cuisines: French, Chinese and their own. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but Budapest’s reputation as a food capital dates largely from the late 19th and first half of the 20th centuries and, despite a fallow period during the days of Communism, is once again commanding attention. So, too, are its world-renowned wines – from Villány’s big-bodied reds and Somló’s flinty whites to honey-gold Tokaj.

Culture-seekers can indulge in the citys many art galleries, museums and heritage sites, while music lovers will want to enjoy a performance at the famous Budapest Opera or one of the city‘s concert halls.

Budapest Nightlife – Bars & Clubs The nightlife in Budapest is vibrant with clubs and bars spread all over the city. There are a few hotspots such as Liszt Ferenc tér, Ráday utca or Nagymezo utca where the density of bars and clubs is higher however you can find nightlife spots in every part of the city.

A characteristic that, nearly a quarter of a century after the fall of the Berlin Wall, remains a defining feature, perhaps more so than in any other capital. Berlin is the creative workshop of Germany, a trendsetter and a capital of fashion, design and music. Famously, artists have appropriated the remains of the Berlin Wall: the section from Oberbaum bridge to Ostbahnhof station, now going by the name of East Side Gallery, has become an illustrated encyclopaedia of street art. A Pulsating Metropolis with Tranquil Green Spaces With its vast array of public parks, extensive woodlands, and scores of lakes and rivers, this capital city is no doubt the greenest metropolis in all of Germany. The vast green space at the centre of the German capital stretches between the high-rises on the Potsdamer Platz, the distinctive silhouette of the Berliner Philharmonie, home to the world-famous Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the dark steles of the Holocaust Memorial: Berlin’s Tiergarten. The laid-back way of life can be found throughout the city. When the weather gets warmer, life in Berlin moves outdoors to the beach bars, pavement cafes, open-air cinemas and theatres – perfect for enjoying the sunshine and the balmy summer nights.
