Welcome to the Austrian National Tourist Office Newsroom

Austria is a country with scenery beyond comparison and a warm hospitality welcoming all. Cycle through lush green valleys or walk amongst spectacular mountains criss-crossed with sparkling streams in summer. Come winter, it’s time to head to well-groomed pistes and snowy mountain summits for stunning panoramas. No matter what time of year, Austria awaits you with fresh air, individuality, “Gemütlichkeit” and value for money.
