Servus aus Österreich!
Hello from Austria!
Take a trip to the nation of mountains and music and discover the beauty of Austria! We are famous for Mozart, Sound of Music and apple strudel, but we have so much more to offer, in particular with regard to environmental protection!
Did you know that we are the leading country in the European Union when it comes to organic farming? Over 20% of Austria’s agricultural land is organic and we even have a famous organic chocolate, Zotter Schokolade, exported to the world. Austria also is the front runner in the green electricity sector and in recycling, approximately 72% of our electricity comes from renewable energy sources and 63% of all our waste is recycled. The Vienna soccer team Rapid Wien even made a funny promotional video about it!
See for yourself:
Come join us on Saturday, May 11, 2019, for the EU Open House Day at the Austrian Embassy in Washington, DC.
Chat with Embassy staff, sample Austrian delicacies like strudel, Zotter chocolate, and coffee, get to taste some Austrian wine and take part in a quiz about Austria throughout the day.
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
This embassy is wheelchair accessible.
