Rail Europe austria by train



Situated at the landlocked heart of Europe sharing borders with eight neighbouring states and boasting some of the most varied and vertiginous terrain in Europe, Austria is a land of striking contrasts.

Ruled by the Habsburg Empire, Austria has created a wealth of palaces, government buildings and parkways in the capital city of Vienna. Austria is known around the world for its classical taste of music, good food, beautiful scenery, art and architecture and of course the world-famous music composer Mozart. Austria offers an amazingly diverse range of attractions with a special mixture of tradition and innovation, which you encounter at every corner of the country.
