Tirol – Holidays in the Heart of the Alps


Visitors to Tirol will experience a majestic and enchanting mountain landscape sure to touch their soul. Countless outdoor activities and a warm welcome make holidays in this stunning region an unforgettable experience.

“Here I have finally found a place of quiet, a place of peace, the like of which I could have only wished for,” wrote Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about Tirol in 1829. Today, many visitors still come to this region in the west of Austria to leave behind their worries, escape the stress of everyday life and be at one with nature. With more than 500 peaks over 3,000m, more than 600 glaciers along the main alpine ridge, lush green meadows and charming huts, this area boasts a truly unique landscape.
