Take the brief survey here...

Marked by rolling hills the landscape of Upper Austria transitions from the plains of Lower Austria to the rugged Alps in the west.

The capital, Linz, is an alternative to the imperial city of Vienna or the baroque city of Salzburg, which has allowed it to experiment with technology and modern design more freely, as with the impressive Ars Electronica Center.

While in Upper Austria visit small towns like medival Steyr, baroque Schaerding and imperial Bad Ischl. On your way to Salzburg make sure to stop in quaint villages of the Salzkammergut region, such as Hallstatt.
