Starbucks City Mug Austria - Tyrolean Hat

Austria is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is bordered by the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Austria's terrain is highly mountainous due to the presence of the Alps.
The origins of modern-day Austria date back to the time of the Habsburg dynasty. During the 17th and 18th centuries, Austria became one of the great powers of Europe.

The Tyrolean hat (also Alpine Hat) is a type of fedora hat named for the Tyrol in the Alps. It is essentially the shape known as the trilby. Tyrolean hats are made of felt, traditionally having a corded hatband and a feather on the side as trim.
The traditional "brush" worn on the hat is made of the tail of the chamois goat. The brush takes a variety of forms, and may often be combined with feathers.
