Regions of Interest

Visitors who get to know Austria on business often develop a fondness for this country. No wonder: the sheer beauty and diversity of its natural scenery is overwhelming. Think of sun‑kissed Burgenland with its wide stretches of steppe landscape and hundreds of birds species, think of the gently rolling hills of the Wachau valley and its idyllic, terraced vineyards along the banks of the river Danube, or of Austria’s alpine west with its imposing mountain ranges and extensive alpine pastures. Think of lakes and rivers so clean you can drink their water, think of crisp mountain air that reinvigorates with every breath you take, ideal to draw energy and inspiration for novel plans and ideas. And not to forget a myriad of opportunities for hiking and mountain biking, cannoning and rafting, but also skiing, snow‑shoe rambling or cross‑country skiing – a perfect counterpoise to intellectual flights of fancy.

Historic Sites

Whatever location you have in mind for your event in Austria, the next town or city with a panoply of cultural attractions is only a stone’s throw away. Often, historic old city centers can be found side by side with futurist architecture that has caused a buzz internationally, such as the Kunsthaus art gallery in the old town of Graz whose facade shimmers in all shades of blue, or the soberly elegant Lentos Museum in Linz on the river Danube. It is always worthwhile to stroll aimlessly through the medieval streets of Vienna, Graz or Salzburg, to soak up the atmosphere, and to stop by at one of the venerable coffee houses for a bracing Melange (cappuccino style coffee with milk) and a home‑made apple strudel.
