Architecture & Art of Building

Tirol may be a small country, but can certainly boast of an eventful history. Whether the Imperial Hofburg in Innsbruck, Ambras Castle or Kufstein Fortress – impressive and historical buildings bear witness to Tirol’s turbulent past.

Known as “The Land in the Mountains”, this province has another side to it: modern, progressive and innovative. Many spectacular and pioneering buildings, designed by Tirolean and international architects, demonstrate this “zeitgeist” and determination for modernisation. The courage to break new ground extends from the city to rural areas and even right up to the mountaintops.
