Austria is well known for the cultural cities of Vienna and Salzburg, green meadows, white mountain tops and the music of Johann Strauss. Austria is traversed by the Alps, a mountain range with a number of summits higher than 4,000 metres.
For 600 years, Vienna was the capital of the Habsburg Dynasty, that ruled a large part of Europe. The pomp and splendour of that time has been preserved.
