Tourism

Tourism is important to Austria´s economy and a major employer. Austria has turned into one of the leading tourism destinations worldwide. Although small in size and population, it is among the 15 most visited countries in the world. The reasons for this are diverse: the majestic Alps, beautiful rivers and lakes, its cities, richness of culture and culinary art. Hospitality and service quality in small family businesses with tight regional bonds add to a unique tourism experience.
