These scenic spots in Tirol were made for your Instagram feed. Once you've snapped the perfect pic, don't forget to put aside your phone or camera for a few moments and simply soak up the view ;)!

1. Wildseeloder

Wildseeloder Lake near Fieberbrunn truly epitomizes the beauty of Tirol’s mountains. For the best light, you’ll want to shoot sunrise here, so snuggle up in a bed at Wildseeloderhaus Lodge. Get up early to greet the dawn and have your camera ready. After snapping to your heart’s content, spread out and chill by the lakeside.

Early morning in the Austrian Alps, waking up from one of the best sleeps we had this summer.. I've written a piece on the issue 01 of the Wilderness Collective print magazine about our summer adventures through Europe.

After an hour and a half of hiking in the fog, @alexstrohl and I spent the night in that cabin and woke up with a pretty good view! A post shared by Andrea Dabene (@andreadabene) on Aug 20, 2015 at 9:36pm PDT

2. Bärenkopf

Bärenkopf Mountain is probably the best Achensee Lake lookout – with mountains and evergreen-fringed hills as far as the eye can see. The hike to its summit past Bärenbadalm Alpine Pasture Hut takes some three hours and the view at the top will make the sweating worthwhile – promise!

The view up there is just insane ? We humans are so small on that amazing planet, it's crazy ?. . . #nature #natureadventure #natureparadise #explorenature #magicalplace #mountains #mountainscenery #mountainsunrise #hikingadventures #explorethemountains #welcometonature #alps #discoverearth #discovernature #neverstopexploring #earlybird #amazingmountains #amazingnature #welivetoexplore #thegreatoutdoors #mountainadventures #lifeinthemountains @awesome_earthpix @discoverearth @artofvisuals @modernoutdoors @ourplanetdaily @thegreatoutdoors ‪#goexplore A post shared by Tom Klocker (@tomklockerphoto) on Jan 25, 2017 at 8:11am PST

Sonnenaufgangstour zum Bärenkopf-zugegebenermaßen habe ich heute viel geflucht über dieses weiße Zeug, das teilweise bis zum Oberschenkel reichte. Aber wie immer hat sich der Kampf gelohnt. Was für eine Aussicht ? #garmin #asicsfrontrunner #sziols #trailrunning #schneesollweg A post shared by Lea Bäuscher (@leabaeuscher) on Apr 1, 2017 at 8:26am PDT

3. Plansee Lake

Yes, the water at Plansee Lake near Reutte really is that perfect. During the summer months, Tirol’s second largest, iridescent lake is a flawless mirror for the surrounding Alpine landscape.

4. Olpererhütte

Olpererhütte Hut in Zillertal Valley offers incredible views of mountain peaks and a glinting, turquoise lake. Compose your photo with the ‘heart’ in the foreground – or yourself, posing like a triumphant mountaineer. The hike to the hut can be completed within 1.5 hours from Schlegeis Reservoir, and the views of the mountains are simply stunning.

5. Highline179

Charge your phone, grab your selfie stick, and make sure you have no fear of heights: Highline179, the record-breaking suspension footbridge near Reutte, is another social media envy-inducing place in Tirol. All fears aside, don’t forget to look down. The view from the bridge is one of a kind.

6. Nockspitze

Nockspitze Spire, also known as Saile, is a very popular mountain near Innsbruck – and offers spectacular views of the sun rising over the mountains. The hike from Axamer Lizum to the top of Nockspitze takes some 2.5 hours to complete.

7. ice Q Restaurant, Sölden

Perched on the top of 3,048-metre Gaislachkogel Peak in Soelden, the distinctive cuboid-shaped ice Q Restaurant with its walls of sheer glass fits in with the surrounding mountainous landscape. If you’re headed for this incredible destination, your Instagram account is about to become way hotter.

English⬇ Впервые в Зёльден мы с мужем приехали 4 года назад, когда решили, что пришло время и нам научиться кататься на сноуборде? Признаюсь честно, я до того момента и на лыжах-то не стояла ни разу…? Конечно, мы сразу взяли себе инструктора! Удовольствие, я вам скажу, не из дешевых. Тогда пара часов индивидуальных занятий обходилась нам в €200. Поэтому, если вы предпочитаете экономить?, то я советую новичкам заранее взять несколько уроков на родине, что я сама и сделала перед нашей второй поездкой в Зёльден ? В Москве индивидуальные занятия стоят в разы дешевле, ну и немаловажно отсутствие языкового барьера, который, скорее всего, нам и мешал понимать нашего дорогого (во всех смыслах) инструктора? В общем, наши первые попытки кататься можно назвать успешными с большой натяжкой, но нас это не остановило, и сейчас катаемся вполне уверенно, но без экстрима ? ************** Our first trip to Sölden was 4 years ago, when my husband and I made up our minds to learn snowboarding?I didn't even know how to ski then…? Of course we decided to leave it to a professional and booked a few private lessons with a local instructor. It's not cheap, I should tell you. Then a 2-hour lesson cost us €200. So if you are not a big spender ? and you want to learn snowboarding, I'd recommend beginners to take a few lessons at your home city, before the trip. This is actually what I did before our second trip to Sölden ? (of course, I cannot compare prices for snowboarding lessons across the world, I'm comparing Sölden vs Moscow only) In Moscow the private lessons cost us a few times cheaper, and secondly, there was no language barrier which obviously was one of the obstacles at our lessons with the local instructor in Austria. So generally speaking, our first snowboarding experience was not so successful as we expected, but we never give up, and now we are much better at it ?? **************************************** Sölden Austria **************************************** #Austria #Mountain #Sölden #mountains #eurotrip #skiing #marina_travelgo_austria #vacationwolf #wintertime #cold #lovewinter #igrecommend #ig_europe #igeurope #spring #sunny #springtimefine A post shared by MARINA ?✈️ MOSCOW, RUSSIA (@marina.travelgo) on Apr 15, 2017 at 2:40am PDT

8. Engalm at Karwendel Range

Engalm and Großer Ahornboden are excellent places for quiet contemplation and discovery, where wind whistles through old sycamore maples. The picture-postcard plateau at the heart of Karwendel Alpine Park anchors a blissful panorama exemplified by a symphony of colour that changes with the seasons. In autumn, this majestic scenery turns ablaze with fall foliage colours in a most breathtaking fashion.

9. Swarovski Crystal Worlds

The Crystal Cloud in the gardens or the subterranean labyrinth of crystalline chambers of wonder—close your eyes, spin around, then open them and snap the first thing you see. If you’re at the Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds) in Wattens, it’s impossible to take a bad photo. Just brace yourself for the onslaught of likes.

Hello, I'm in here! Where? Oh only the inside of a gigantic @swarovski crystal! ?? Loved this magical crystal dome @kristallwelten even if it did bring back memories of watching The Crystal Maze!! ❤️? A post shared by Chloe Gunning ??? (@wanderlustchloe) on May 17, 2017 at 1:29pm PDT
