In this article I will tell you about the 8 that I think you should not miss if you plan a route through Austria. Do you want to know them?

Vienna

Vienna
The capital of the country is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe without question. Its glorious past means that we can enjoy incredible buildings, while we can visit museums in which some of the most outstanding works of art history are exhibited. An example? "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt, which is in the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere.

Salzburg

Salzburg
Talking about Salzburg is not just talking about the figure of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, from which, by the way, many euros are obtained in the form of souvenirs , such as his famous chocolate coins with pistachio. We must also mention the Hohensalzburg Fortress , which is the largest and best preserved in the entire old continent. Mirabell Palace and Hellbrunn Palace are two other points of interest that the tourist should not miss.

Innsbruck

Innsbruck
Visiting Innsbruck means changing the chip if we have been to Vienna and Salzburg before. It is in a mountainous region that invites us to ski and merge with nature. And not only that, since the capital of Tyrol deserves more than one photograph thanks to the Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) or the Ambras Palace.

Graz

Graz
Graz, the capital of the state of Styria, is another city with a lot of history that also boasts of its artistic wealth. The square that is located in its medieval old town, the Hauptplatz, is one of the most beautiful things you will see if one day you decide to visit it.

Linz

Linz
To the northeast of Austria is Linz, the capital of Upper Austria. You can see that the Romans were there, as well as that it preserves a large part of the architectural heritage of the 19th century. The square in the city center is very beautiful, as is the Brucknerhaus House . Also, you cannot miss the opportunity to stroll along the Danube.

Villach

Villach
Villach is a city that was also important in Roman times, but unfortunately very few historical buildings remain. Why? Because of the Second World War . It is close to the Italian border and it cannot be denied that it has its charm.

Feldkirch

Feldkirch
Another essential city is Feldkirch, which we could define as picturesque after walking through its streets and squares. It is on the border between Liechtenstein and Switzerland, away from the hustle and bustle of a big city like Vienna. There, tranquility is the predominant note, although that does not mean that you cannot enjoy the good atmosphere of its terraces both day and night.

Kitzbühel

Kitzbuhel
If you are fond of skiing, it will probably sound familiar to you. It is a city located in Tyrol that is famous for its ski resort, where year after year one of the events of the Alpine Ski World Cup calendar takes place. Its rural style, which was fed by mining copper and silver in the past, has evolved over the years to adapt to the demands of tourists, who are increasingly seen in those parts. They are looking for snow, nature and privileged views . They seek to soak up the most authentic Austria.
