Austria On a Budget
Austria Salzburg Old Town
Transportation costs in Austria tend to be high due to high costs and frequency of ferry boat rides, train or funicular ticket prices, and the unique geographic placement of many touristed towns.

Austria is probably most famous as a tourist destination because of the beautiful Alps. Mountains cover three quarters of the country, with the remaining one quarter filled with vineyards, rolling hills, and river gorges. Most visitors come to see the mountains, and they will not be disappointed. Austria is a popular destination for winter sports enthusiasts. From downhill skiing, to snowboarding and ice skating, Austrian winter sports abound. You can't pick a better setting, whether you are a beginner on your first trip or a seasoned expert there is likely to be something for you in the area.

If you're not interested in winter sports, head to the area during the summer months when the hiking is at its best. The stunning Alps make a unique backdrop for exploration. You can explore charming villages as well as historic cities. If you're more interested in the area's culture you won't be disappointed. Music enthusiasts can head to Vienna which has a rich history of classical and modern music. The country plays host to many festivals throughout the summer months that feature all styles of music from jazz to folk music. Shopping is another favorite past time in many cities and towns. You'll find shops that sell local handicrafts or art that is specific to the region. It's fun to browse even if you're not in the market for anything in particular.

For many people, "The Sound of Music" springs to mind when they think of Austria. The city of Salzburg, the setting place for the movie, is lovely to visit and explore. If you're particularly interested there's even a themed tour that focuses of points of interest from the movie.

The costs in Austria are comparable to elsewhere in Western Europe, although they are slightly higher than those you might find in the United States. To save money, consider cooking a few of your meals and eating out a little less. Restaurants can be quite expensive, particularly during dinner hours. Also consider visiting Austria during the shoulder season. Prices are higher during the winter months when people head to the Alps for the skiing. They're also higher during the summer months when many families travel here on vacation. You're likely to find the best deals during the spring or fall months when tourist crowds are at a minimum and demand is at its lowest.
