‘A Taste of Austria’: Stunning Timelapse Packs 2 Years of Travel into 3 Minutes [VIDEO]

Austria is a mostly mountainous country in Central Europe with a population of 8.5 million. Home to the Central Eastern Alps, Northern Limestone Alps and Southern Limestone Alps, about 68% of the country is above 500 meters or 1,640 feet.

The mountain landscapes, which can appear overwhelming, nevertheless make for some awe-inspiring photography.

After two years of filming throughout Austria, filmmakers Thomas Pöcksteiner and Peter Jablonowski of Vienna’s FilmSpektakel gathered 600 timelapse clips and put together “A Taste of Austria.” The video gives us a peek at the the natural beauty of the countryside, as well as glimpse of Austria’s charismatic towns.

On the video’s Vimeo page, the two filmmakers write:

The scenery of our home country Austria is beyond compare. We live in the heart of Europe where we have a spectacular combination of cultural and natural attractions. No matter what time of year, Austria will welcome you.
