Our Thoughts

Austria may feel like southern Germany, but history buffs know the story is much more complex. Once an empire of diverse peoples, Austria seems to be more interested in remembering its musical past. Who could forget Mozart?

We enjoyed ice caving and hiking around Hallstatt, which could compete in a beauty contest with any European town.

Highlight: Strolling Vienna, eating apple strudel, and attending a chamber music show.
