The story of 'Silent Night' isn’t all church bells and choirs. 200 years since it was first performed in Austria, we follow its snow prints through the country to discover how this simple lullaby of hope became the world's biggest Christmas carol.
Rippling over from southern Germany into Austria, the Northern Limestone Alps are some of Europe’s most phenomenal mountains. When the first flakes fall, their heights hum with skiers and boarders. No matter whether you’re looking for black runs and rollicking après-ski or a culture-crammed winter break, there’s a city and slope with your name on it.
When the heat turns up in Austria’s capital, the Viennese head to the Donaukanal for refreshment, rejuvenation and relaxation. With long summer days stretching until late September, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the energetic paths dripping with street art either side of the canal that splits the city.
