Take a German course in Austria, famed for its incredible culture, fascinating history and magical scenery.
Austria is known for its beautiful mountains and, as a result, is a fantastic destination for winter sports enthusiasts. However, it’s not just a winter holiday destination as you can also enjoy the summer sunshine relaxing by one of the country’s many lakes or by hiking in the Alps.
With a famous royal lineage, Austria is a country full of history. A wonderful example of this is the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. Built in 1638, this incredible 1,441-room Baroque palace guides visitors through 300 years of the Habsburgs' dynasty. In addition, Austria cultivated many of the most famous classical composers, including Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, leading it to be considered a world capital of classical music. During your stay, you can learn more about this side of Austrian cultural history during special cultural tours and in museums and concerts.
Austria’s cuisine is also very well-known, especially Viennese cooking, and traditional meals are influenced by other countries that used to form part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire such as Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic. Austrian food such as Wiener Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel are found in all corners of the world. Wine, coffee and bread are very important in the Austrian diet so you will find a huge variety of all three all over the country. Don’t forget to visit a traditional cafe during your stay, such as Hotel Sacher in Vienna, or one of the Heuriger (wine taverns) scattered across the East of the country.
