Much of the country's territory sits in the heart of the mountainous Austrian Alps, making the region a prime spot for trekking, skiing, or cozying up in a mountain resort. The mountain range makes Austria, along with Switzerland, the winter sports capital of Europe. Though the Alps are most famous for hosting a wealth of ski resorts for visitors of all skill levels, regional tourism is growing, capitalizing on the appeal of outdoor recreation during all seasons. Visitors flock to the Alps for hiking, golf, biking, and whitewater kayaking in addition to skiing.
