High winds, heavy snowfalls and icy conditions are playing havoc with travel in Austria. The BBC, in a bevy of articles, describes the problems being caused by heavy snowfall in the west of Austria where villages and some towns have been cut-off due to road and railroad closure.
If you are planning on travel in Austria this week, you might want to avoid the most heavily hit areas.
Today, we noticed that Vienna was rated the top city in the world for quality of life. Earlier this year, we published our new, online Guide to the Best Places to Visit in Vienna, shortly after completing extensive field research in this delightful city. When we returned to our home base, we wanted to hop on a plane and revisit Vienna, as we found ourselves longing for its historic buildings, musical heritage, fantastic museums, dazzling attractions and, of course, those wonderful coffee shops and pastries.
If you are considering a trip to Europe, Vienna may be just the ticket for you. Read our Guide to the Best Places to Visit in Vienna for all the details on why this city is one of the world’s best.
