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 varied landscape, is incredibly diverse in terms of its buildings too.

Carinthia Architectural Highlights

No Austrian province has more water than Carinthia. It comes as no surprise then that any architectural tour of the region leads to the pictureque shores of a lake.

Tirol Architectural Highlights

Visitors to Innsbruck in the summer months may be amazed to encounter a glacier-like, futuristic ice formation in the middle of the city, but they are looking at just one of many examples of innovative architecture that create a stimulating contrast to the numerous historic buildings here in Tirol.

Vorarlberg Architectural Highlights

Vorarlberg, Austria’s westernmost province, is striking for its many structures with timber construction. The architecture is simple, natural and sustainable, traditional and cosmopolitan all at once – like the people who live here. Join us on a tour of Vorarlberg’s building culture and mentality.

Upper Austria Architectural Highlights

A day in Upper Austria can be short if you want to experience all its architectural gems. Linz is a cosmopolitan city that houses culture and arts, and the surrounding historic towns such as Bad Ischl and Hallstatt are treasure troves of splendid buildings. Venture further into the province to find countless tremendous abbeys and monasteries.

Salzburg Architectural Highlights

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