Tirol

Tirol attracts visitors from all over the world to get the best out of both worlds - the urban sophistication of Innsbruck, its capital city and the spectacular Alpine playground around it.

Rugged peaks, rolling Alpine pastures, picturesque valleys, spectacular glaciers all make for the stunning scenic beauty of Tirol.  Its friendly people, a long history in hospitality and a great infrastructure make Tirol a truly unique destination.

The overwhelming beauty of Austria’s third largest province is spectacular. One of Tirol's biggest claims to fame are its 500 mountain peaks that rise more than 3,000 meters (9800 feet) above sea level. These sky-scraping peaks and awe-inspring mountain ranges dominate the Alpine landscape of Tirol’s five main regions: Außerfern, Oberland and Unterland, Innsbruck and East Tirol. Tirol has a total area of 12,648 km2 (4,883.4 square miles), of which only some 1,580 km2 (610 square miles) are inhabitable due to the country’s mountainous terrain. More than a quarter of the provincial area is a nature reserve.

Tirol has a population of over 700,000 (living in 279 communities, eleven of which are towns). Tirol's largest city is its capital, Innsbruck, which is located near the geographic center. Explore the mountains surrounding Innsbruck, and get the best of both worlds—the urban sophistication of a historic city and an Alpine playground that begins where the sidewalks end.
