|Austria is a landlocked alpine country in Central Europe bordering the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Slovakia and Switzerland. Together with Switzerland, it is the winter sports capital of Europe. However, it is just as popular for summer tourists who visit its historic cities and villages and hike in the magnificent scenery of the Alps. Many famous composers were Austrian – including Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Liszt, Johann Strauss, Mahler, and Bruckner. Plus, Arnold Schwarzenegger is also Austrian.
