A small country with great history and impressive landscape. Mountains, forests, fields, meadows, rivers and lakes dominate the picture and attract millions of tourists every year.

The west of Austria impresses with high peaks, clear mountain lakes and traditional alpine pastures. A paradise for hiking in summer and skiing in winter. The east of the country astonishes with its diversity. In addition to arable and orchards, viticulture plays a major role.

Agriculture characterizes Austria scenically and culturally. The Austrians are very proud of their regional food, and so farmers’ markets, farm shops, inns and taverns are an integral part of the culture.
