The landlocked country of Austria lies in central Europe and is part of the European Union. It is bordered by Italy and Slovenia to the south, Switzerland and Liechtenstein to the west, Germany and Czech Republic to the north, and Hungary and Slovakia to the east. Mountains largely dominate the territory within its borders, which is host to parts of the Central Eastern Alps, Northern Limestone Alps, and the Southern Limestone Alps.
An alpine climate dominates the country, given its largely mountainous terrain, and receives relatively high temperatures in the summer, averaging in the mid-20s.
Visit in the milder months between June and September for ideal mountain climbing conditions.
