Tirol - Heart of the Alps


Majestic snow capped peaks, quaint valleys, glittering mountain lakes and mighty glaciers create a unique landscape that attracts visitors from all over the globe and makes the “Heart of the Alps” one of the world’s most attractive holiday destinations. In addition there is a remarkable cultural programme, from historical towns to top cultural events and traditional Tyrolean evenings. Tirol’s villages, towns and regions are famous for their traditional customs and celebrations as well as for being home to museums and other cultural attractions of the highest quality. Local inns are the ideal place to sample some of the delicious local specialties and relax after a long day out and about in the fresh air. And when things hot up in summer, there are plenty of crystal clear lakes to cool off, let your thoughts wander and simply lose yourself in the moment.

Tirol for families
The options for children, teenagers and their parents in Tirol during the warm summer months are almost limitless. There are so many different leisure parks in Tirol catering for a wide range of interests and ages. How about, for example, a day out at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens with their chambers of wonder, play tower and eye-catching crystal art installation? Or maybe a trip to the Ötztaler Funpark with its climbing wall, bungee trampoline, giant swing and slackline? If you want to include the mountain experience, why not visit one of the many mountain leisure parks. When spring has sprung and the snow has melted, the region's ski resorts are transformed into giant adventure parks inviting visitors of all ages to explore, discover and learn. Many of these mountain leisure parks can be accessed via cable car.  Another highlight for the whole family are Tirol's summer toboggan runs with catchy names such as the "Alpine Coaster", "Osttirodler" and "Lauser Sauser". Some are also open during the winter months. For more ideas click here.
