The city of culture, classical music and of course cake, Vienna is a jewel in Central Europe. It’s not hard to image the imperial Habsburg family calling it home, as the whole city looks like something straight out of a fairy tale. Each building, even if it was a just a basic shop front warranted a photo.

Austria Travel Guide

History

Austria was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the end of World War I when Austria adopted the name the Republic of German-Austria in a bid to unite with Germany. In 1938 Austria was occupied by the Nazis, which lasted until the end of World War II. Democracy was restored and now there are 9 federal states. It is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and part of the EU & United Nations

Money

The monetary unit in Austria is the Euro (€). For up-to-date exchange rates with your own currency visit www.oanda.com or www.xe.com. The easiest way to obtain money in Austria is to draw it out of an ATM (cash machine) on a credit or debit card (e.g. visa or cirrus). ATMs are widely available throughout Europe and credit cards are accepted in many restaurants and shops. Another option is to bring cash, in either US dollars or euros (pounds sterling and other currencies cannot always be easily changed) but we advise against bringing all your money in this form, in case of theft. In all of the cities that we visit there are many places to change money and your tour leader will be able to show you where to get the best rates of exchange. Please note: Travellers cheques are not recommended for travel anywhere in Europe as these can be difficult to change and attract poor exchange rates or exorbitant commission.
