About Austrian tourism
Austria, a country at the heart of Europe comes alive with its striking landscapes, beautiful towns and cities, surrounded by the Alps and quaint villages. Located in Central Europe, Austria is steeped in rich cultural heritage, honoring centuries old traditions, and stunning baroque architectural details of the imperial palaces. A popular European tourist destination, visitors can never get enough of its picturesque cities and towns. Well connected by road, rail and air, Austria is great for outdoor adventures, winter sports, nature exploration, and is the perfect tourist destination for natural wonders and old charmed cities.
The Austrian National Tourist Office (ANTO) is a national tourism organization, solely responsible to boost international tourism, by promoting Austria as a global vacation destination. ANTO is the primary contact for travel related queries, and provides comprehensive services for potential travelers with information about local attractions, travel planning, tour operators, travel agents, and itinerary guides. Similarly, foreign nationals can also access information through representative offices located across Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East.
To download and order travel guide brochures, visitors can contact the regional tourist offices, or browse Austria Info, the official online portal for travel information. Similarly, individual travel guides of each province in Austria are also available for download, along with travel highlights and insider tips. Also, finding hotel accommodations is much easier, with a choice of listings from city-based hotels and idyllic hotels in the Alps. Visitors can also opt to rent a chalet or holiday apartment or enjoy a farm stay holiday, based on their lodging preferences and availability.
