Austria is located in the heart of Europe and covers an area of 32,383 square miles (83,879 square kilometers). The landlocked country is bordered by eight other countries: Germany to the northwest, the Czech Republic to the north, Hungary and Slovakia to the east, Italy and Slovenia to the south, and Switzerland and Liechtenstein to the west.
Our first map of Austria is a political map showing all the Austrian states with their capitals. It also includes the surrounding countries of Austria.
Austria has a population of 9 million (estimated 2022), and the country’s capital city is Vienna. Other major cities include Graz, Linz, Salzburg and Innsbruck.
Austria’s population is diverse, with about 20% of the residents born in other countries. Significant minorities include Turks, Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks, Macedonians and Slovenes. This variety results from 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
Austria’s most beautiful and awe-inspiring landmarks are the Alps, the Danube River, the Bohemian Forest, and Lake Constance.
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 regional transport link. 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 enjoy 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.
Bodensee-Vorarlberg not only offers access to Lake Constance and stunning nature, but cities like Bregenz and Dornbirn also attract visitors with their cultural festivals and modern architecture.
