With a high standard of living and a rich cultural heritage, Austria is on many of European travellers wish list and home to many lucky ex-pats who enjoy a very affluent standard of living. With major world players such as OPEC basing their headquarters in Vienna, Austria is considered one of the best places to live and work in.

This is a country who gave us Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss and the founder of psychoanalysis Freud.

Magnificent Vienna on the Danube with its Imperial Palaces inspires young and old. Salzburg is such an elegant city.

Who could forget The Sound of Music and the amazing scenery of the Austrian Alps?
