Austria as a European destination is a real treasure. The breathtaking scenery of the Alps, the energy and history of the cities Vienna or Salzburg, the music emanating from the concert halls and town squares are each reason enough to bring your students here, but weave them all into a diverse itinerary and you have a trip of a lifetime.
Music groups can’t deny the depth of history and influence of composers such as Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Strauss. To tour places where music you have taught your students was composed or performed adds a layer of connection that just cannot be gained from a recording. To see and hear the present-day musicians sharing their love of music and to become part of those people performing all over the country – there is no substitute for this type of experience.
Groups that want to focus on history, architecture or the environment have so many ways to delve into what Austria has to offer. The valleys scattered throughout the country each have their own personality and the alpine villages are as picturesque as the books from our childhoods. Getting out and meeting the people of the country and sharing different cuisines and crafts help enhance the experience for all who travel in this beautiful country.
