Austria - Europe's Meeting Place

Austria has an abundance of cultural treasures that is immeasurable but not incomprehensible. This includes its “high culture”, of course, but also its everyday culture and the special lifestyle of the people who live here, the culinary specialities that serve as the landmarks of Austria and its individual regions, and the encounters visitors have with the incomparable people of our country. All of these qualities are so impressive today because they are the result of a great variety of influences from West and East, from North and South. Throughout history, Austria has always played a special role in the centre of Europe: as a bridge-builder, as a meeting place, and as a venue for cultural exchange.
