Heribert Gangl of Horwath HTL Austria has written our latest Special Market Report, focusing on Austria’s tourism market.
Austria offers an exciting and rich variety of tourist attractions to its visitors: modern cities, beautiful nature and well-preserved cultural highlights. The so-called “Alpenrepublik” is also home to many international events such as the Salzburg and Bregenz Festival or the Opera Ball and Life Ball in Vienna. Austria is an attractive year-round tourist destination and welcomed almost 40 million overnight visitors in 2015. Since 2000, tourism arrivals have increased by a total of 49% and overnight stays by 19% to reach new record levels.
