When planning your trip to the Austrian Alps, you should stop online at Austrian National Tourist Office: http://www.austria.info. The site has tons, truly, tons of information that will help you plan your trip. The first page immediately presents you information as varied as downloads of city tours to listen to on your iPod, a search engine to find and make reservation in the country's hotels, a travel guide through  livecam and postcards, updated weather information, contact phone numbers in the USA and Canada to the Travel Information Center, news about Austria, an updated calendar of events and suggestion of tours. You can also request a brochure to receive by mail or you can download it from the site.

The site will answer all your questions (and broaden your panorama of choices) regarding cities and towns, lodging, attractions, tours, winter and summer sports, art and cultural events and wineries.

On the site you can buy tickets to concerts and performing arts events.
