Innsbruck

 
Innsbruck Innsbruck is the capital of Tirol and - contrary to some expectations - it is not only an alpine ski village; it's a bustling city of over one hundred thousand inhabitants. Nonetheless, it attracts more North American winter visitors than any other European ski destination.

Graz

 
Graz Graz, the capital of Styria, owes its importance to the defence of central Europe against the Turks. From the 15th century, Graz was permanently under arms, rendering it far more secure than Vienna. During the last years of the Habsburg empire, the citys mild climate made it a popular retirement choice for officers and civil servants.

Kitzbuhel

 
Kitzbuhel Kitzbuhel is an impressive name to drop in the pub. Every Ski Sunday viewer knows that the Hahnenkamm racecourse is the most challenging on the World Cup circuit, helping the resort to cultivate a reputation as a rather special place. But the racecourse is untypical of Kitzbuhel's slopes and there is nothing very special about coping with icy, slushy or bare slopes. We have visited Kitz countless times, and rarely found decent snow on the lower slopes. It does of course get good snow at times and has invested serious money in snowmaking. The actual village of Kitzbuhel dates back to the 13th century. Its charm is accented by painted medieval houses, colorful sidewalk cafs, and stylish shops. Festive flags and bun...

Vienna

 
Vienna Austrias wonderful capital Vienna spreads along both sides of the Blue Danube (which, as the Viennese are certain to point out, is actually muddy brown) at the very foothills of the Alps. The city is a smorgasbord of Baroque with a dash of art nouveau. Circling the old town (or Innere Stadt) is the striking revivalist architecture of the Ringstrasse, Viennas main boulevard. These buildings range from the charming Opera House to the monumental Natural History Museum.
