Most foreign people who come to Austria (mainly Americans), think that the country is a very nice place and want to stay. The first impressions are: friendly people, a nice environment and no leatherpants (as many people might have heard). In Austria there's a lot of mountains. You can Ski almost everywhere and that's the reason why there are so many skiers coming from austria. Unfortunately Austria has got one of the worst soccer teams in the world.
Austrians have great wines and the kitchen in Austria is one of the best in the entire world. (And also one of the helthiest). Special stuff like Kürbiskernöl (pumpkin seed oil) or Lipizzaner (completely white horses).
(Maybe I'll continue writing later...)
