Sightseeing

As mentioned previously, Salzburg, Austria is where the award winning movie: The Sound of Music was filmed. After Vienna, Salzburg is the most popular tourist destination in Austria, with lively nightlife and picturesque scenery. Also, there are companies that offer Sound of Music tours in which you can see the breathtaking landscape where the opening scenes were filmed, the home of the Von Trapp family, and the convent where Maria (Julie Andrews) arrives late for Mass. Also, you can take a tour of the birthplace and residence of Mozart.

Vienna, Austria’s capital, is filled with imperial nostalgia such as Baroque churches and aristocratic mansions from the Habsburg era. Such historical edifices are juxtaposed to modernist buildings from the Freudian and Schönberg era and contemporary buildings from the late 20th century, offering an interesting and historic architectural timeline. The more popular sites in the city include the 12thcentury Stephansdom, which is considered one of the world’s most enchanting Gothic cathedrals. The Schönbrunner Schloβpark contains a commanding palace, the oldest zoo in the world, the biggest palm house in Europe, and a gorgeous royal park.

Shopping

Food, clothing, and souvenirs (even edible ones) can be found at a variety of prices in Austria. You can even get a tasty music history lesson with the famous Mozart chocolate balls. These gourmet desserts were created by Paul Fürst in 1890 and consist of Marzipan balls rolled in a walnut-nougat creme and then dipped in chocolate. For shops that sell more than just chocolaty-goodness, head down Mariahilfer Strasse, which is a street that has the greatest number of shops and stores in Vienna. Now it’s time to take a stroll (while munching on chocolate, of course) to one of Austria’s famous marketplaces. In Vienna, the Naschmarkt is the place to buy fruits and vegetables, but it also sells seafood, spices, homemade pasta, cheese, bread, and many different kinds of pickles. The Viktor Adler Markt offers a variety of food similar to the Naschmarkt, but it has an added benefit of international specialties such as Turkish, Greek, and Indian. In Salzburg, check out the country’s 3rd largest street market called the Schrannenmarkt, which sells leatherwear, health foods, flowers and general foodstuffs.

Nightlife and the Arts

Do not underestimate Salzburg in terms of nightlife. The city has some of the best nighttime venues in Austria, with free concerts and theater performances, discos and beer halls, and even a striking Irish pub. Like Salzburg, Vienna offers a variety of options for nighttime fun. You have the option of sitting in a bar and listening to the soothing sounds of jazz or dancing the night away with live music and DJ’s, and everything in between. If partying and dancing is not your thing, then you will definitely enjoy sipping a cup of coffee in the many Gothic style coffee houses.

Vienna is home to many art museums including contemporary, applied, and graphic as well as a science museum and a museum of natural history. More unusual museums include a museum of undertakers, a museum of torture, a museum of chocolate, and a museum dedicated to the country’s national liquor: Schnapps. The Hofmobiliendepot-Mobel Museum Wien houses a vast collection of interiors and furniture from the royal Habsburg family and the Josephinum Sammlungen de Medizinischen Universitat has historic studies from the medical school: a must for medics.

Of course, no trip to Austria is complete without attending a classical symphony in one of the country’s many theaters, and what are just as spectacular as the performances are the theaters themselves, especially at night when they are beautifully illuminated on the exterior. In Vienna, the more popular theaters include the Burgtheater, with sumptuous decor and ceiling frescos by Fraz Matsch and Gustav Klimt; the Figurentheater, which is a puppet theater; Vienna’s English Theater, which flies in performers from England to act in mainstream productions; and the Theater-in-der-Josestraat; which has a stunning interior with ornate chandeliers.

There are a few English language print and online newspapers in Austria includingDer Neue Grazer and Austrianews.com.
