Austrian Airlines and Austrian Airlines Vacation Center have created a 10-day, nine-night vacation package that showcases the scenic and cultural highlights in Austria’s three most famous cities.

The Awesome Austria vacation package includes three nights in Innsbruck in the heart of Austria’s Alps; three nights in Salzburg, the city of Mozart (and the Sound of Music); and three nights in Austria’s imperial capital, Vienna.


The package includes roundtrip air, economy class between either New York JFK or Washington Dulles to Innsbruck as well as first-class, one-way rail transportation from Innsbruck to Salzburg and from there to Vienna. The three different hotels featured in the package are all first-class, centrally located hotels known for high-quality service: Hotel Innsbruck, NH Hotel Salzburg, and Hotel Johann Strauss (in Vienna). Daily breakfast buffet, hotel service charges and hotel taxes are included.

The Schonbrunn Palace is Vienna's most-visited tourist attraction, with some 8 million visitors in 2007. It was the summer palace of Maria Theresia and the Habsburg dynasty. The palace and its gardens are not quite as extensive as Versailles, but Schonbrunn certainly is in that league for size and the sumptuousness of its decoration
