Travel theme: interior

The Wachau area in Austria is a major wine-producing region and is home to the Losium, a visitor centre that shows the wine-making process from start to finish. Apart from an impressive collection of vintage wines, it features a very colourful light show and the hall of infinity mirrors produces some interesting photographic effects.

Hangar 7 near Salzburg airport owned by Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz is not a hangar in a traditional sense but rather a multifunctional building with a collection of 25 historical airplanes, helicopters and Formula One racing cars. It also has a couple of restaurants and a shop.

Vienna’s many historical buildings have some wonderful interiors. We found the most interesting one behind the relatively plain (by Viennese standards) facade of the Jesuits church.

However, the interior with its trompe l’oeil ceiling, created by the Italian Andrea Pozzo in the early 18th century, was glorious
