Klagenfurt is the Capital of the Bundesland Kärnten/Corinthia Austria. Its located close to the Lake Worthersee. A lot of extraordinary moments happened here and thus it has beautiful buildings to offer and the myth of Lindwurm.
Linz is the capital of the Bundesland Oberoesterreich/Upper Austria, and Austrias third-largest city. Due to its position at the Danube Linz is an industrial city. The Voestalpine AG is a large steel concern (founded as the "Hermann Gring Werke" during World War II) that also dominates large parts of the city and the former "Chemie Linz" chemical group make Linz one of Austria's most main economic centers. Linz is also the home of PEZ makers of peppermint candy.
Salzburg preserve an extraordinarily rich urban fabric, developed over the period from the Middle Ages to the 19th century when it was a city-state ruled by a prince-archbishop. Its Flamboyant Gothic art attracted many craftsmen and artists before the city became even better known through the work of the Italian architects Vincenzo Scamozzi and Santini Solari, to whom the centre of Salzburg owes much of its Baroque appearance. This meeting-point of northern and southern Europe perhaps sparked the genius of Salzburgs most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose name has been associated with the city ever since.
Sankt Polten
The busy industrial and business town of St Plten, situated 40km/25mi west of Vienna on the left bank of the Traisen, is the largest town and capital of Lower Austria. Some of the leading Baroque architects and artists, such as Jakob Prandtauer, lived and worked here. After the birth of Christ the area which is now St Plten old town was the Roman town of Aelium Cetium. St Plten has several theatres and museums such as the Lower Austrian State Museum, the Diocese Museum, and a modern art museum. Ratzersdorf Lake offers a bathing pond with a nudist beach, beach volleyball, and miniature golf.
Few cities in the world glide so effortlessly between the present and the past like Vienna. Its splendid historical face is easily recognised: grand imperial palaces and bombastic baroque interiors, museums flanking magnificent squares and, above all, the Hofburg where the Habsburg rulers lived, loved and married into empires.But this historical aspect often makes us forget that Vienna is also one of Europes most dynamic urban spaces. Just a stones throw from Hofburg, the MuseumsQuartier houses some of the worlds most provocative contemporary art behind a striking basalt fa+ºade. Outside, a courtyard buzzes on summer evenings with throngs of Viennese drinking and chatting. Nearby, restaurants brim with imbibers enjoying the pleasures of wine and food, while across the yard a museum caf+¬ pulsates with beats.
Wels is the second largest city of the state of Upper Austria, located in the north of Austria, upon the Traun River near Linz. It is not part of its neighboring Wels County (Bezirk Wels-Land), but a so-called Statutarstadt (independent city). However, Wels is the county seat of Wels-Land
Wien (Vienna)
Vienna is an ideal-typical European city similar to London, Milan, Paris or Rome, but unlike the others it is very compact and easy to negotiate. Vienna is referred to by many as a unique onion, with each of the metropolitan layers surrounding the oldest historic center being equally important to the overall flavor of the city. The Austrian capital therefore embraces all the traditions of a European city, from Roman foundations through to Gothic, Baroque and Historicism. Visitors are keen to visit Vienna because of the city's exciting mixture of the royal-imperial flair of the past with the latest trends, the responsible cultivation of a precious heritage and charming traditions. But much more than old buildings turn Vienna into a city of beauty: one also finds excellent museums, fine art collections and world-renowned...
