Austria is landlocked country in Central Europe, with The Alps dominating  the western and southern parts
whilst the eastern provinces, Vienna included, lie in the Danube basin.

Austrian federal republic is divided into nine states ("Bundesländer" in German).

State highpoints are given by elevation  in descending order.
Few of them are located on borders between two or more federal states
and  they count  as highpoints for more the one single federal state.

For the states bordering with other countries, a common name other then German is given as well.
Again, for the states known internationally under common English name,
this (English) name is listed at the very beginning.
