Stunning high definition footage shot in winter and spring captures the idyllic essence of Austria: you can almost smell the waft of strudel as the helicopter-mounted camera glides over picturesque streets and spacious squares.
Highlights include: the stunning, picture-perfect village of Hallstadt, historic Salzburg with its characteristic domed churches and Sound of Music charm, a cruise along the Danube River including Melk Abbey and Dürnstein Castle, and, of course, Vienna with its unique combination of opulent historic buildings and a distinctive modern twist.
The program’s soundtrack showcases a glorious musical tradition of a region where even the wind sounds musical, including compositions by “Waltz King” Johann Strauss and native sons Franz Schubert, Gustav Mahler, Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
