About Austria

Austria is a landlocked country located in Central Europe. It’s situated north of Italy and Slovenia and south of Germany and Czech Republic.

In the east and north, Austria is mostly flat or gentle-sloping. This is where most most of Austria’s population is concentrated, including its most populous and capital city, Vienna.

It’s not as well-known, but Austria is home to the world’s largest and longest ice cave system. Eisriesenwelt (Ice Giants World) is a natural limestone cave system stretching out to 42 kilometers (26 miles) in length.

One of the most notable features in Austria are the Alps mountain chain in the west and south. Austria’s highest point is a peak known as Grossglockner at 3,798 meters high, located in west-central Austria.
