If it is summer and you are comfortable behind the wheel, get in your car and drive. You are in Austria. There perhaps are no more spectacular roads in the world than those that crown the Alps, caress the mythic valleys and connect the imperial cities and storied hamlets of this European crown jewel.
The roads will wind past glacier and gasthaus, nature preserve and opera house. Austria’s national treasures are both natural and cultural, and any trip must include experience of each.
