The book presents Austria as a contemporary Shangri-la for all seasons in the midst of an economically challenged, war-torn world. Starting with its historical background of imperial legacy and developed over the past six centuries, readers are then taken on an exploratory tour of modern-day Austria where they experience Vienna and its environs, as well as exploring Austria farther afield and including "must-see" Austrian sights. Then the book's premise is illustrated through twelve vignettes-personalized, off-the-beaten-track experiences-each of which captures unique features of Austria's nine provinces (including Vienna) during all four seasons of the year-contrasting places, times and individual adventures. A complementary concept profiles experiences of different kinds-sports, culture, customs and traditions, along with Austrian culinary and wine specialties.
