Austria Tourism Website Information
While this website offers general information about Austria, it has the unfortunate situation of having tour offerings embedded directly into the content. So, for instance, the information about small towns in Austria is presented in exactly the same format and layout as a tour package to wine countries. The only way that you know that it is not something sponsored by the tourism board of Austria is a single line at the bottom of the page that says “This tour is offered by”. These are under the menu item of “Special offers”, however, the internal navigation from other pages does not specify that these are vendor offers. You have to carefully watch the top menu to see where you are actually going (it’s highlighted in red). While these offerings may be valuable to the casual consumer, if you want a custom tour, there’s no clear way to find that information. We suggest using an Austria custom travel planner to help you come up with the perfect trip for you!
From the website:
“Visitors have long been charmed by the sense of tradition, love of life and warm hospitality that defines Austria’s quaint towns, and this collection offers you just that.
Hidden across Austria like precious gems, far from the city hustle, 14 towns form Austria’s Small Historic Towns. With an average of 14,000 residents, each town has been selected according to special criteria. There is Bad Ischl known as the Emperor’s town, Feldkirch which is a pretty, medieval settlement, and Gmunden famous for its ceramics – to name just a few.”
Here is a website that discusses travel and tours around Austria from an insider’s perspective. There’s a lot of useful, well-organized information here. It’s presented with the aim of supplementing and, perhaps, clarifying the usual “official” tourism website (see commentary below).
