(Rough Guide Travel Guides S.)
Tour Austria. It’s the spectacular, snowcapped mountains
of regions like the Tyrol that provide the most familiar images
of Austria, a landscape of jagged peaks and rampaging rivers,
giving way to green pastures studded with onion-domed churches.
Yet Austria is by no means all alpine vistas: the country stretches
across central Europe for some 700km, from the shores of the
Bodensee in the west to the edge of the flat Hungarian plain
in the east. Far removed from the archetype are the wetlands
and reed beds of Burgenland, and the dramatic sequence of stopes
that carve their way up the Erzberg in Styria. In Upper and
Lower Austria in particular, a predominantly low-key landscape
of gentle rolling hills and vineyards can come as something
of a surprise to first-time visitors. Yet this fertile, low-lying
northern half of the country is, in fact, where the majority
of Austrians live and work, many of them within commuting distance
of the capital, Vienna, the country’s chief tourist destination!
after the alpine regions. For all its bucolic charm and fondness
for the days of empire, when Vienna sat at the centre of the
vast, multinational Habsburg dynasty, Austria today is thoroughly
modern, clean, efficient and eminently civilized, with uniformly
excellent tourist facilities. Like neighbouring Switzerland,
it’s also a supremely law-abiding nation, where no one
jaywalks or drops litter, and the trains and trams run on time.
Whether you’re staying in one of the popular skiing, hiking
or spa resorts, or in an out-of-the-way Gasthof, you’re
likely to experience Gemütlichkeit, a typically Austrian
term expressing a mixture of cosiness and hospitality, at some
point during your visit.

The Wines of Austria (Mitchell Beazley Classic Wine Library S.) The recent dramatic rise in quality of Austria's wines has inspired Philipp Blom to fully revise and update his detailed exploration of this country's culture, history, wine laws, grapes, winemaking, and top producers into its second edition. The quality of Austrian wine has risen dramatically over the past twenty years, and especially in the last five as Gruner Veltliner has taken on the world's top Chardonnays in major blind tasting competitions. This completely revised and updated second edition explores the history of Austrian wine and provides in-depth reference to Austria's wine regions, including Burgenland, Wachau, Styria, Kremstal, and Kamptal. The leading estates and winemakers in each area are detailed, and the best wines of each are highlighted. The book also features twelve detailed maps of the wine-producing areas, and an explanation of grapes, winemaking techniques, and wine laws, as well as useful vintage information..
