Cultural Attractions in Tirol’s Historic Towns

With their fine townhouses, majestic fortresses and medieval alleys, it is no wonder that Tirol’s town centres are popular with visitors keen to marvel at the architectural highlights and learn more about local history.

Often dating back many centuries, Tirol’s town centres have many stories to tell. Indeed, in some of them time appears to have stood still. Many such old-towns were built during the Middle Ages and have been lovingly preserved and restored. The Golden Roof in Innsbruck, Kufstein Castle with its famous Heldenorgel open-air organ, and Rattenberg with its long glass-blowing tradition are among the most well-known. All are home to numerous attractions, museums and other cultural highlights. The largest old-town in Tirol can be found in Hall in Tirol, which for many centuries enjoyed great wealth thanks to its booming salt mining industry.
