WALTZ THROUGH TIME & SPACE
Austria moves like no other country through seasons, from urban to countryside, past and present – it’s a waltz through time and space.
The winter months with snow covered mountains and crisp days on the piste are well-known, but once the snow and ice have melted a new country blooms. The mountains are swathed in carpets of flowers, the crystal-clear lakes are perfect for boating and swimming and the towns and cities put away their Christmas stalls for outdoor concerts and café culture in the sun.
Food & Drink in Austria
A trip to Vienna, or its sister city Salzburg, is an invitation to join the coffee drinking elite. Nowhere does it quite like Austria, with patisserie windows stacked with delicately iced tortes waiting to be tasted alongside cups of the dark liquid.
For dining, there are a number of specialities including Wiener Schnitzel – breaded veal escalope – Tafelspitz, topside beef broiled in broth and served with horseradish and palatschinken, thin crepe like pancakes with sweet or savoury fillings. Complete the meal with rich chocolate Sacher Torte or Apfelstrudel where crisp pastry is layered with an apple and raisin filling. For that all important accompanying tipple, try a crisp Riesling or warm winter bones with a cup of Glühwein.
THINGS TO DO
AROUND THE RESORT
Ice of all kinds draws you to Austria; enter the labyrinth of caves at Eisreisenwelt and discover beautiful ice formations or head to Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal World) and pass through 17 Chambers of Wonder. The Krimml waterfall and the Grand Fountain at Schloss Mirabell dance with the light of crystals as the sunlight falls upon their waters. The magic of Austria is at your fingertips when you stay at CLC Alpine Centre.
