Book flights to Austria

Austria may be small, but it’s renowned for its art, culture and grand mountainous backdrop. Its cities boast a charming café culture and plenty of art galleries, while its great outdoors offers snowy slopes in the winter and hiking trails in the summer. Let’s not forget about the lively beer gardens either.

Fly to Vienna with British Airways and enjoy an afternoon spent in one of its famous coffee houses, eating chocolatey Sacher Torte. Wander through the many museums, art galleries and exhibitions on offer. Then in Salzburg you can walk among hilltop fortresses, gilded palaces and concert halls where Mozart once performed. Relax over a tankard of Weissbier – wheat beer – at Augustiner Braustubl, a brewery that opened in 1621. Next, strap your skis on in Innsbruck and head to its world-renowned slopes. After, wind down in the old town centre, Altstadt, where you can find plenty of restaurants to satisfy that post-ski hunger. Take a moment to admire the Goldenes Dachl, one of the city’s most famous landmarks, which was built in the 1500s. Book your Austria holiday now.
