Upper Austria travel guide

4.5
Landmarks · Churches · Specialty Museums
Celebrate regional traditions and culture in Upper Austria, studded with castles, bike trails, and renowned museums. The region is quieter than many tourist centers in the country, and locals prefer it that way. This hidden gem may not have as many big-name attractions as other Austrian regions, but medieval villages, charming landscapes, modern galleries, and old-world cafes make visitors happy that they've wandered off the beaten path. For an Austrian adventure, stop by state's capital and artistic center, Linz, and enjoy other sights along the Danube River.
