Tyrol is a small federal state of Austria in the western part of the country and located in the heart of the Alps, offering unique experiences at the highest level, both during winter- and summertime. The area can easily be reached via Innsbruck International airport, but also from Zürich and Munich.
Innsbruck, also called "Capital of the Alps" is a small city showing a very special flair in its old town with its landmark "Goldenes Dachl" (Golden Roof) and combines the unique mountain scenery and cozy spots at one of the inns in the city. Cable cars go directly from the city center up to the alpine range Nordkette that characterizes the image of Innsbruck. After only 20 minutes, one can enjoy mountain life and a great view over the city of Innsbruck.
