Austria has a population of 9 million people (estimate 2022), the country’s capital city is Vienna. Other major cities include Graz, Linz, Salzburg and Innsbruck.
Austria’s population is very diverse, with about 20% of the residents born in other countries. Large minorities include Turks, Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks, Macedonians and Slovenes. Part of this variety is the results of Austria’s long history as a multinational state since the Austrian Empire and the Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary. In modern times, the main factor for cultural diversity has been immigration, particularly from Turkey and the Balkans.
Map of Austria with States
Some of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring landmarks in Austria are the Alps, the Danube River to the Bohemian Forest.
The Danube River is the second-longest river in Europe, stretching 1,770 miles (2,850 km) from its source in Germany to its mouth in Romania. Along its route through Austria, it passes through famous cities like Vienna and Linz and serves as a vital transport link for the region. The Danube valley represents approximately 15% of the territory of Austria and is home to roughly 8 million people. It is the most important area for the Austrian economy as well as the country’s power supply. The various landscapes along the Danube’s length have been immortalized in countless works of art and literature over the centuries.
The massive mountain range of the Alps stretches from France to Slovenia and covers much of western Austria, including popular ski resorts like Kitzbühel and Ischgl. The dramatic peaks provide breathtaking views for visitors who come to take advantage of year-round outdoor activities like hiking, skiing and snowboarding.
The Bohemian Forest is located on the borders between Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. It is a low mountain range with extensive forests and peaks between 800 and 1,400 meters.
