Find your placement in Vienna, the historic capital city of Austria
Austria was once the German speaking core and center 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.

Check our list below for the best places to discover during your stay in Austria:
1. Zell am see
Located in the Salzburg mountains, Zell am See is one of the most picturesque cities in the Austrian Alps that will give the opportunity to enjoy a 80 miles of ski slopes during the winter and a perfect summer destination for swimming and cycling along the green paths of Zeller See.
Along the beautiful Danube river, Wachau is the best place to try some of the unique Austrian dry white wines. Not only that, but the city is also famous with number of impressive medieval fortresses, monasteries, and castles, and even has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its natural beauty and cultural importance.
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
Also know as Bodensee, Lake Constance is an excellent destination at any time of the year; summer brings the opportunity to go for a boat trip, lounge on one of the many beaches, or cycle along the shore, while winter visitors can relax in one of the thermal baths, visit a Weinfest, or spend the afternoon in one of the many castles.
Located on the shores of Lake Constance, Bregenz offers incredible views of Germany, Switzerland, and the Alps. A promenade runs along the waterfront, making 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 cozy coffee-house culture ensure that it more than lives up to anyone's expectations.
Internship in a country with constantly growing commercial relations
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.
