Mountains, lakes and Kaiserschmarrn: cycling holidays in Austria.
Even if Austria is known as a culturally varied and rich country, most of the tourists come to enjoy the landscape, the mountains and the lakes. The opulent architecture of Austrian towns is also typical of this country. Buildings as for example the earlier imperial castle of Schönbrunn and the "Hofburg" of Vienna testify the former significance of the Danube Monarchy that extended its empire over most of the catchment area of the river Danube. Though the Monarchy was abolished in 1918, it has left traces in some traditions - last but not least in culinary names like "Kaiserschmarrn". Apropos "Kaiserschmarrn": Those who are watching their figure must be particularly resistant in Austria. The delicious flummeries and desserts are famous far beyond the borders - and are worth each and every holiday pound.
