Pearl of Austria

And it doesn't end there: go deep underground at Salzwelten Hallstatt, pause for some serene contemplation at Parish of the Assumption, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Hallstatt-Dachstein - Salzkammergut Cultural Landscape, and don't miss a visit to Hallstatt Skywalk "Welterbeblick".

Upper Austria travel guide

4.5
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Sacred & Religious Sites
Celebrate regional traditions and culture in Upper Austria, studded with castles, bike trails, and renowned museums. The region is quieter than many tourist centers in the country, and locals prefer it that way. This hidden gem may not have as many big-name attractions as other Austrian regions, but medieval villages, charming landscapes, modern galleries, and old-world cafes make visitors happy that they've wandered off the beaten path. For an Austrian adventure, stop by state's capital and artistic center, Linz, and enjoy other sights along the Danube River.

Sacred & Religious Sites · Castles · Specialty Museums
The country's largest province, Lower Austria, offers tourists a taste of Austrian history, culture, and scenery. This region is actually situated in the northernmost part of the country, but was named for its location downriver along the Danube. Take part in outdoor recreation or relax at a top-quality vineyard. Like much of Austria, this region hosts forests and mountains and is dotted with castles and lakes. Additional attractions include museums of traditional handicrafts, a historical abbey, and the nation's newest capital town.
