Going Unplugged in Austria
Climbing mountain ranges is just one way to embrace the outdoors in Austria. There are wildlife-rich wetlands laced with bike paths—just an hour’s train journey south from Vienna—and scenic vineyards spread beyond the Danube. Over the centuries, Austrians developed foods, activities, and customs that can vary from one Alpine valley to another. In other words, if you want to switch off, this Maine-sized nation promises countless ways to experience the transformative power of nature.
