Rail Tours in Austria

Holiday Tours through the Land of the Waltz

Travelling through Austria it is impossible to miss the elegance of the landscape. Over half of the country is mountainous terrain and the sections in between are awash with rivers, lakes and grand mansions. Some of the best ways to see Austria are holiday tours by train that cover the country's natural sights as well as the cultural centres of Salzburg, Innsbruck and Vienna. Famed for the opera house, Vienna sparkles through the winter in the lights of the famous Christkindlmarkt, and in the summer the parks blossom with live performances of the music of Strauss. For the culturally minded, a rural Austrian holiday with tours of the cities is an experience to savour.

Austria - Holiday Tours and Traveller's Notes

Guests visiting Austria on holiday tours should be aware that the Austrian way of telling a waiter to keep the change is to hand over payment and say thank you or danke (pronounced dank-uh). If you expect change wait until you receive it before thanking your waiter.

Austrians greet each other with a hand shake. While you may see some Austrian men bowing to kiss the hand of a lady this is considered ostentatious and is not expected from guests visiting Austria on holiday.
