The history and culture are fascinating. Beautiful Gothic and Baroque buildings with sterile plain buildings interspersed - sad reminders of the bombings during the war. Gorgeous countryside ranging from rolling green hills to magnificent snow-capped mountains. Highways are immaculate with all the conveniences.

Schools close for a week in February so families can go skiing. - Jan 2013
