Austria is a landlocked German-speaking country in Central Europe. The population of the country is around 8 million. Austria is popular for summer tourists who visit its historic cities and villages and hike through the magnificent alpine scenery.
Find your placement in Vienna, the historic capital city of Austria
Austria was once the German-speaking core and centre of power for the large, multiethnic Austro- Hungarian Empire. With the imperial capital in Vienna, this empire stretched eastwards from present-day Austria through much of east-central and south-central Europe. Doing a year abroad program in Austria, however, is a lifetime experience that will bring you directly to the home of one of the most talented musicians of all times, namely Mozart, Strauss and Freud. Getting inspired in Austria is not a difficult task, from the beautiful architecture around the streets to the delicious local food and of course not to forget the impressive Viennese ball, recalling the romance and elegance of the 19th century.

3. National Park Hohe Tauern
Can you imagine something more beautiful? About 1,800 square km of green lands, National Park Hohe Tauern is the oldest and largest national park in Austria and arguably the most impressive. This is where you can find the country's tallest mountains, largest glaciers, and most beautiful forests, and it's also notable for being home to more than half of the animal species found in Austria.
4. Lake Constance

Located on the shores of Lake Constance, Bregenz offers incredible views of Germany, Switzerland, and the Alps. A promenade runs along the waterfront, making it an excellent place for a stroll, and the city itself is full of admirable art and architecture.
Famous for being the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the shooting location for The Sound of Music, Salzburg boasts a picturesque old town that looks like something straight out of a storybook.
As the imperial capital of the country, Vienna has some big shoes to fill. However, its majestic baroque architecture, lively cultural scene, and cosy coffee-house culture ensure that it more than lives up to anyone's expectations.
Austria’s economy benefited greatly from its entry into the EU in 1995, the introduction of the Euro in 2002, and its growing commercial relations–especially in the banking and insurance sectors–in central, eastern, and southeastern Europe. Austria has high standards of living and close ties to other EU economies, especially Germany.
