The province of Tyrol is so different from the rest of Austria that when you get there you may think that you have crossed the border and are in a completely different place. The border between Salzburg and Tyrol is completely defined by the mountains. These have a series of routes that allow enough traffic to travel through them.
In winter , you will find huge masses of snow . The sledding and skiing facilities are unrivaled. But if you go in summer you will be able to enjoy the impressive images that you have always seen on postcards with those impressive alpine landscapes. Do not miss its mountain lakes and its green and immense forests.
Like most people in other mountain villages, the people of Tyrol are proud of where they live. The mix is perfect: you can hear the cowbells in the fields and at the same time visit one of the most cosmopolitan city, Innsbruck . The city is the great treasure of the area.
You should not miss:
– Ötz Valley . This area is ideal for all those hiking enthusiasts.
– Spas . You should not leave the area without going to a spa. This will not be too difficult for you as almost all hotels in Tyrol have a spa on their premises.
– Tyrolean Stuben . These warm and welcoming wooden lounges are often found in hotels and restaurants. These were part of the traditional Tyrol farmhouses and are still maintained due to the tranquility they provide to visitors.
