Enter to win a trip to Austria.

A sample intinerary:
Contemporary art and culture converge in the MuseumsQuartier Wien, home to more than 60 cultural institutions. The world-renowned art-space not only offers great art but also great cafes and restaurants. Two of the must-visit museums are the Leopold Museum with its famous Egon Schiele collection as well as the MUMOK, where contemporary art is the main focus.

The Liechtenstein Museum is an institution of national and international importance showcasing masterpieces from the early Renaissance to the Baroque period. For an unrivaled for drawing collection as well as ground breaking contemporary exhibits don't miss the Albertina Museum.

While in Vienna we suggest staying at the Hotel Altstadt Vienna, which was named one of the "Best hotels in the World" by Conde Nast Traveler.

The renaissance city of Graz is located just two hours south of Vienna and is a hotbed of culture. With its jaw-dropping contemporary architecture, such as the Kunsthaus Graz and world-class entertainment, Graz was the first Austrian city to be named European Capital of Culture.
