Tailor Made Austria Holidays

A Land of Magnificent Mountains, Mansions and Music

Austria is dominated by stunning mountain scenery which, thanks to a ruggedness that makes easy exploration by car or on foot virtually impossible, is truly best experienced when travelling by train. Railway lines snake through impressive cuttings hewn from mountainsides to provide breath-taking views of Alpine lakes and meadows below and glistening snow-crusted peaks above.

Travel with GRJ independent and tailor make your experience in Central Europe. Choose to add a river cruise on the legendary Danube to your itinerary; explore medieval villages among the forested hills and valleys of the Tyrol, or simply swoon at the majestic glaciers, lakes, waterfalls and wildlife to be found in Hohe Tauern National Park, surrounding Grossglockner, Austria's highest peak.

A Tailor Made Adventure by Rail

Amidst this natural splendour, Austria boasts some of the finest and most memorable cities in Europe. For the culturally-inclined, Vienna, the capital, is unmissable. Vienna's musical pedigree is unrivalled; this is the city which inspired composers including Beethoven, Bach, Händel, Schubert, Strauss and Brahms. Concerts of their music are still performed regularly in Vienna's magnificent churches and concert halls, and there are many museums dedicated to the life and works of these legendary composers.

The smaller, but postcard-pretty city of Salzburg is the birthplace of Mozart and whilst Getreidegasse, the busy shopping street in which the composer's childhood home can be found, might be the city's most popular attraction, a visit to the spectacular eleventh-century Fortress Hohensalzburg, which stands high on a promontory overlooking the city, is an experience not to be missed.

Dwarfed by the dramatic Nordkette mountain range, Innsbruck is also a trove of medieval treasures. The small Tyrolean capital is a delight to explore, its baroque-styled cathedral and the majestic Habsburg palace easily justifying your journey.

Welcoming, atmospheric, culturally rich and indisputably beautiful, Austria is the perfect destination to take your bespoke holiday; this Alpine wonderland could easily fool you into believing that it had been purposely designed with the aim of providing the most unforgettably enjoyable rail holidays you could imagine.
