Austria General: 282 reviews and 255 photos

Fondest memory: I very much liked the town we stayed in. It was called Feldkirch, and was just over the border from Switzerland. The difference was unbelievable...in prices, in friendliness...everything. We travelled on the cheap - stayed in the local youth hostel, which was a wonderful place, took local buses and trains, and shopped in the local supermarket. A great, if unorthodox, introduction to Austria! We were there for New Year's Eve, and the guy in charge of the youth hostel cooked a wonderful fondue, and we had a party with the other residents, a German family from Stuttgart, and a young bunch of skiers. One of the best 'Sylvesterabend' ever!
