Austria was founded in 967 AD. In 128, Rudolph I, king of the Habsburg dynasty, ascended the throne. With the end of the monarchy at the end of World War I, Austria was officially recognize as a republic in 1919. When World War II broke out, Hitler’s Nazi forces occupied Austria.
Jews living in Austria were then brutally persecute. Jews were kille indiscriminately. After the defeat of Germany in 1945, the Allies divided Austria into four parts. After many ups and downs, Austria gained full independence on May 25, 1955.
To understand Austria, one must visit its three cities, Vienna, Salzburg, and Innsbruck, to enjoy the country’s magnificent royalty, its thrilling scenery, and its mystical diversity.
I like traveling to Austria. From the cities to the mountains, I’ve had plenty of great travel experiences over the years. This is why I am interested to travel to the country with the Austrian National Tourism Office and bring you the perfect Austria travel itinerary for 10 days.

The garden adjacent to the palace is also quite beautiful. A magnificent Roman sculpture stands in a water fountain in the middle of the garden.
There is magic in the soil of this city. Once in a while, the mind of the tourist is obsesse with a strange feeling.

Wherever the eye goes, there are scenes to see. Innsbruck has several hilltops worth visiting. This city can be beautifully discovered from all over the place.
Located south of Innsbruck, Bergisel is famous for its variety of adventure sports. The Winter Olympics were held here twice in 1984 and 1986. The stadium in Burgessel is worth a visit.
Tyrolean State and Folk Art Museum
A little further down from Bergisel is the beautifully decorate Tyrolean State Museum in a mountain valley. The museum is rich in the history of the wars of medieval Europe. The main attraction here is the various weapons of that time. Tirol’s metalwork, handicrafts, traditional costumes, and art can be seen more specifically at the Tirolian Folk Art Museum. There is also the famous Crystal Showroom, the Swarovski Museum, and the Alpine Club Museum

Other attractions in the city of Salzburg include Residence Square, Salzberger Dome, Old Tyne of Salzburg, Jail MC, Salzburg Cathedral, Salzburg Festival Theater, Celtic Museum, Helbran Palace, and many more! The Salzburg Festival is held every summer. Crowds of tourists flock here to see it.
It was an amazing trip, and I enjoye so much time getting to know Austria. Being close to the mountains of Innsbruck, climbing the Sound of Music in Salzburg and gaining experience in food and design in the garage has become an inspiration. And the best part is that it doesn’t last long. I’m going back to supper clubs next year I’m going to help choose the menus. I can’t wait to visit Austria again and if you get a chance to visit I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
