Austria is a special country. It was once the largest empire in the world spanning from Hungry to Mexico. It’s a country that gave us great musicians like Mozart, philosophers like Wittgenstein, writers like Stefan Zweig and of course the famous psychologist Sigmund Freud. There’s no better Aprés Ski than in Austria, their beer is pretty good, and the wines from the Wachau and Burgenland can compete with the best from France and Italy.
From their “There are no Kangaroos in Austria” souvenir t-shirts and bags, to Mozartkugel, and Red Bull, Austria proves that it has a sense of humor, a sweet tooth, and a keen business sense.
