'''Austria''' is a member state of the [[European Union]] as well as the [[Schengen Agreement]]. It is a good country for hitchhiking.
On the Motorways, you can easily “hop” from city to city. Good places are service stations.
It is surrounded by [[Germany]], [[Hungary]], [[Czech Republic]], [[Slovakia]], [[Switzerland]], [[Slovenia]], [[Liechtenstein]] and [[Italy]].
People in Austria speak German, but knowledge in English might also be enough to communicate.
