Austria's end points are not as spectacular as GB's, and you don't find any pictures of the points themselves, so I'll have to go with the communities closest to them.

NORTH:
Rottal, Lower Austria, bordering the Czech Republic:




EAST:
Deutsch-Jahrndorf, Burgenland, close to the tripoint A-HU-SK:




SOUTH:
Seebergsattel, Carinthia, a pass road to Slovenia:


WEST:
Feldkirch (Nofels district, I guess), Vorarlberg, close to the tripoint A-CH-FL:
