Lush green pastures and picture-perfect wooden chalets, yes, of course. But there's also the exceptionally elegant Vienna to enjoy. Cafe culture is huge here, exorbitant cakes and coffee menus as long as your arm, but there are dozens of trendy bars and restaurants to choose from too. The city is awash with trendy art houses and of course there are the Christmas markets to keep you entertained.
For a true breath of fresh air, head to the hills. The mountains around Salzburg offer excellent skiing in a calm, relaxing atmosphere. Beautiful scenery, glacier-fed lakes and a healthy love of spa lifestyle makes for the perfect winter break.
