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, and value for money.

What sets apart Austria most, however, are its people, their lifestyle and attitude. Immerse yourself in the joie de vivre, the conscious feeling of taking part in life, the unique feeling that Austrians know as 'Lebensgefühl'. This 'Lebensgefühl' can be felt in all the small and big moments that guests experience in Austria, from the contagious laughter of the hut landlady to the enthusiasm of a museum guide or the Austrian family on the next table indulging in a schnitzel and Kaiserschmarren feast.
