Sprawled out in the Salzkammergut region of Austria is this remarkable 8-kilometer-long lake at Hallstatt. This stunning mountain, fjord like lake is the fifth largest of the region. The name Hallstatt comes from the small, picturesque village that is built into the mountains that flank the lake’s west coast.
Perched near the Austrian-Slovak border, laid over the great Danube river, is the timeless city of Vienna. More than just a great city to explore and enjoy, the Austrian capital is a place of unmatched artistic and academic heritage. During the 18th and 19th Century, Vienna was home to the great Wolfgang Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven – two of the most prolific classical composers in history. Vienna was also home to the great Austrian neurologist, Sigmund Freud, who went on to become one of the most influential minds of modern psychology. But, Vienna’s great legacy is not best experienced through text books, but on the many streets of the great city. It’s magnificently stylish buildings of Baroque and Art Nouveau, coupled with imperial palaces, only enhance the supreme wonder of this magnificent place.
