Austria - Upper Austria (Chapter)
This is the Upper Austria chapter from Lonely Planet’s Austria guidebook.
Upper Austria may not have the in-your-face splendour of the Tyrolean Alps or Vienna's imperial palaces. But it has a taste of all that is great about Austria: the mighty Danube, rich musical heritage, castle-topped medieval towns, resplendent Augustinian abbeys and spas. And the best bit is that nobody really knows it.
