What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Exploring the country outside of Vienna. The other states, outside of the known touristy places (Salzburg) are very different. - Nov 13, 2017
Within Austria, as a family we've really enjoyed farm stays in the mountains where you actually rent a small apartment on a working farm. The views are generally gorgeous, the kids love being on a farm, and it feels like such an authentic piece of Austria. The Heuriger (wine taverns similar to a beer garden but for wine and often in the vineyards) on the outskirts of Vienna are such a lovely and relaxing way to spend a nice spring/summer/fall day. The abundance of charming festivals in the fall completely won me over. Outside of Austria - the easy travel to Croatia, Slovenia, and Hungary (particularly Budapest) have been highlights. - Mar 24, 2015
Hearing world-class music. Seeing world-class art. Sitting in a typical Viennese coffeehouse with a newspaper. Hiking in the vineyards and Vienna Woods. Also, discovering neighboring countries like Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland and Germany. - Jul 18, 2014
