There’s no denying we Austrians like our art. We only inhabit a compact country, but Austria is crammed with an immodest number of museums, art galleries, antique-filled castles and sites associated with classical composers. But if you think this will only produce earnest articles, note that our passion for fine things doesn’t end at themuseum door, nor when the last curtain falls.
Art isn’t just something to be looked at in Austria. Tingle your tastebuds in a Salzburgcafé once frequented by Mozart and discover our cream cakes are masterpieces, too. Sip Austrian wine in a bar atop Graz’s thirteenth-century fortifications: a fine blend. Then tuck into traditional dishes, plunder street markets and enjoy museum treasures in Vienna.
Art lives, breathes and eats in Austria, always providing material for lively and engaging stories. Indeed, our greatest art form is simply the art of living. Here are some ideas for indulging.
Enjoy your journeys!
