Go for more city sightseeing in Graz and Linz and discover their old towns. The cafes and art galleries are worth checking out.

Mozart’s birthplace Salzburg is quite charming and gives you a glimpse of the Alps. Hiking up to Hohensalzburg Castle is a must-do activity here. You can visit Hallstatt from Salzburg as a day trip or stay overnight there. This cute little village is perfect for relaxing and slowing down during your travels.

If you got more time, head to Innsbruck and experience Austria’s Tyrolean culture. You can do lots of outdoor activities in this town, as it’s near the breathtaking Alps. In the historic town center, you can enjoy really good food and hang out in elegant cafes.

Austria has some of the finest ski resorts in Europe, including Soelden, Kitzbühel, Ischgl, St. Anton am Arlberg, and Lech. You shouldn’t miss the opportunity to ski or snowboard if you are traveling during winter.
