Gap Year in Austria

The more you hear about Austria, the more you'll want to pack our bags. This unassuming European country has the glamour of Paris; better architecture than Prague; and more classical culture than you can shake a baton at.

Highly rated for ‘quality of living’, famous for beer and chocolate cake, and packed with ski resorts seeking friendly hosts, Austria really is the perfect place to begin a European gap year or backpacking trip.
