Kurier was the most successful Austrian newspaper established after the end of World War II until it lost that status to the revived Kronen Zeitung in 1959. It combines tabloid, magazine and newspaper content and sees itself as Austria's leading quality newspaper. Kurier is in fact one of the country's most widely read dailies.
