Austrian Grand Prix
The quiet, alpine city of Spielburg, Austria would hardly seem a likely site for one of the most dramatic and challenging tracks on the Formula One circuit. However, Spielburg is indeed the host of the Austrian Grand Prix and its wild, undulating track that challenges the skill and fortitude of Formula One’s best. Sitting in a forested valley within stunning mountains and cinematic terrain, the small town of Spielburg explodes with life and thrills each year when hosting the Grand Prix. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the town exemplifies the character and spirit of a classic Bavarian town. With Graz less than an hour’s drive away, though, you can stay in a modern, bustling city while still experiencing the thrills of the race in a setting seemingly ripped from a Renaissance-era pastoral painting.
