Carinthia: Architectural Highlights

No Austrian province has more water than Carinthia. It is thus no surprise that an architectural tour of the region invariably leads to a lake: in this case Lake Wörth, on whose shores some of the area’s most impressive buildings can be found.

Styria: Architectural Highlights

While the architecture of a region obviously shapes its surroundings, the opposite is just as true. It is thus little wonder that Styria, which boasts such a richly varied landscape, is incredibly diverse in terms of its buildings as well.

Architecture with an International Flavour

Austria’s reputation as a nation with a great cultural tradition is due not only to its music, literature and art. This country also boasts many towering architectural achievements. As in every other artistic field, interaction and exchange with other cultures has always been crucial to the further development of Austria’s architecture.

Salzburg: Architectural Highlights

If cities had a sense of taste, Salzburg would certainly be sweet. This is not only because Salzburg’s most famous delicacy, the Mozartkugel, is made of the finest of nougat and marzipan; it is also and above all because of the fairytale charm of the Baroque city. Salzburg also impresses with its modern architectural counterpoints.
