What to eat and drink in Austria
Austria is famed for its love of coffee, pastries and cakes; perhaps the most famous being 'Sachertorte', a chocolate cake filled with apricot jam, and apple strudel. A typical national dish is Knödel, home-made dumplings usually paired with meat dishes such as goulash and vegetables.
Wash down with fine native wine or soft drink such as `Almdudler' considered the `national drink of Austria' but you can't end a meal without sampling'the schnapps, Austria's finest export!
The Austrian trump card is the Grüner Veltliner grape, pick it early, and you have crisp refreshing wines that are like a tangier, more aromatic version of Pinot Grigio.
What to see and do in Austria
Austria has something for everyone and is particularly reputed as one of Europe's best walking destinations. Hire bikes for the day, explore the valleys on horse-back or learn to water-ski on one of the lakes. Take in the sights and delights of chocolate-box villages and resorts either on foot, by bicycle, by car or even horse and carriage. Austrian festivals are held throughout the summer and live music is played in the picturesque town squares.
