There are so many fantastic, other worldly, beautiful places to see in Austria and I could really go on and on. But if I HAD to pick these are the top spots you should try to see on your next trip to the land-locked country of Austria.
Castle of Hohenwerfen
Beautiful castel built between 1075 and 1078.
Traunsee Mountain Lake
Best viewed in the summer
The entire city is just plain gorgeous. Hiking to the top of the mountain or simply the iconic view of the lake, cathedral, and mountains
Kriml Waterfall in the Austrian Alps close to Tirol
Belvedere Palace in Vienna Austria
A historic Baroque complex made up of two palaces.
Melk Abbey near Vienna
Gorgeous wine region in Austria
Linz Botanical Garden
Vienna State Opera House
Aqua Dome thermal spa resort
One last thing... even though researching ahead of time is great, I definitely recommend bringing a guidebook along with you.
Lonely Planet Pocket Guides are my absolute favorite because, as the name suggests, they are tiny enough to fit in a pocket or a small bag while still giving you a ton of information. But, here are some other books I recommend as well...
And of course, if you have any questions DO NOT hesitate to reach out to me via Instagram, Twitter, or just shoot me an email (email@example.com).
