The Alps dominate the landscape of Mozart’s native country, but Austria is by no means all mountainous vistas: fertile plains make up the east and north. In Upper and Lower Austria in particular, the predominantly low-key landscape of gentle rolling hills and vineyards can come as something of a surprise to first-time visitors. Whether you’re staying in Austria, skiing, hiking or spa resorts, or whether you’re doing in Austria, sipping tea in a Viennese cafe or cruising the Danube’s poetic riverscapes, just take it slow and take advantage of the local Gem├╝tlichkeit (relaxed attitude).
