Holidays & Observances in Austria

Austria is a German-speaking country in Eastern Europe. Most of the population is Roman Catholic, and Catholic holidays are very important. There are only a few national secular holidays in Austria. Dance and music are some of the most important elements of Austrian culture. Composers Mozart, Beethoven, and Strauss all lived in Vienna, the capitol city. Because of this, dance and music are often part of the holiday celebrations. Several world famous music festivals take place in Austria including the Salzburg Festival and the Bregenz Festival.
