This tour offers gay men a wonderful opportunity to explore Austria in comfort and style at a leisurely pace. Not only are the major tourist attractions included, but also some fun experiences, parties, wine tastings and meals in famous local restaurants. There is free time to discover the interesting gay life with its numerous bars, cafes and saunas. The best part is the travelling with other gay men and the fun, enjoyment and friendships that ensue.

Beyond the obvious gay and lesbian places, Austria is queerer than meets the eye. For centuries homosexuals have left their distinctive marks in Austrian arts and politics, sometimes subtle, yet noticeable. And many a visitor today is suddenly confronted with the whole truth about the personality of that special historic figure: "Yes, he was too!" So don't be surprised to find that - apart from the gay and lesbian scene - Austria holds a colorful range of cultural and culinary pleasures, of delightful shops and curious delights.
