Since 2014 Linz has been part of the UNESCO Creative Cities network and also a great tourist destination with many interesting sights and activities. The great combination of historical buildings, stunning architecture, vast areas of green space, and modern innovations mean that Linz has as much to offer as such high-ranking Austrian cities. Linz is famouse for Linzer Tart, one of the oldest cakes and many cofeehouses.

Day 2 Wachau Valley, Austria

Austria's Wachau Valley, nestled between the towns of Krems and Melk, is a 30-kilometer (18-mile) stretch alongside the Danube River. Just about an hour's drive away from the capital city of Vienna, it's a place worth exploring for its intriguing history and its incredible wines. The Wachau Valley is very European- in the sense the countryside reminds you of historic times with rivers, castles and churches. The towns and landscapes of the Wachau Valley have survived the test of changing times, whilst keeping the natural evolution intact. The entire valley was listed as an UNESCO Heritage site in 2000.

Day 3 Vienna, Austria

Vienna is the federal capital, largest city and one of nine states of Austria. It is famous for its cultural events, imperial sights, coffee houses, cozy wine taverns, and the very special Viennese charm.

Vienna is Austria's main centre of education and home to many universities, professional colleges and high schools.

Day 4 Bratislava, Slovakia
