PLAN some­thing truly spe­cial with a tour of two pri­vate palaces. The PALAIS LIECHT­EN­STEIN City Palace and Gar­den Palace are open to the public twice a month. Vis­i­tors get to tour the state rooms of the royal fam­ily of Liecht­en­stein and see their in­cred­i­ble trea­sures. Pre-book­ing of the tour is re­quired. More cul­tural high­lights in Vi­enna: Mozarthaus Vi­enna, Mue­sums-Quartier and Kun­sthis­torisches Mus­esum.

Salzburg was an in­de­pen­dent state for most of its history and ruled by the church. Vis­i­tors can ex­plore its rich legacy of ec­cle­si­as­ti­cal power and wealth on a SPE­CIAL WALK­ING TOUR through the in­ner city. It is the per­fect way to dis­cover Salzburg’s history and hid­den gems.

The SWAROVSKI CRYS­TAL WORLD in Wat­tens, only twenty min­utes out­side of Inns­bruck, is part mu­seum, part theme park and part art in­stal­la­tion. De­vel­oped by artist An­dré Heller, it al­lows vis­i­tors to ex­pe­ri­ence crys­tal in all its facets. And at the Swarovski Kristall­wel­ten Sou­venir Store in Wat­tens, Inns­bruck or Vi­enna trav­ellers can get some of the most mem­o­rable sou­venirs in Aus­tria.
