Stubai valley and Tirol
Austria’s region Tirol is worth a visit not only because of the numerous outdoor activities in a beautiful alpine mountain terrain, there is also much to discover regarding the cultural history of the region.
Whether the weather is nice or unpleasant, a trip to the regional capital Innsbruck is a must during your stay. You will enjoy the view of medieval and baroque buildings against an impressive mountain backdrop as well as the cultural and culinary offer.
We also highly recommend visiting Hall in Tirol, the “city of salt”, Schwaz, “the city of silver” and Wattens with the Swarovski Crystal Worlds.
Sightseeing in Innsbruck
Splendid historical buildings and modern architecture, historic art and athletic peak performances, cosmopolitanism and tradition: Tirol’s capital has always been a place of variety.
Buildings from the Gothic period, the Renaissance, Neoclassicism and the Baroque period invite visitors to a journey into the past: the golden roof, the black men (“die schwarzen Mander”) in the Court Church (Hofkirche), the Hofburg and Schloss Ambras castle are manifestations of the Habsburg era.
Modern architecture and art are represented by the BTV Stadtforum by Heinz Tesar or the ski jump on Bergisel by Zaha Hadid.
Swarovski Crystal Worlds Wattens
Dive into the world of crystals.
Visitors of Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens are enchanted by the sparkling chambers of wonder. Differently themed days and events like the summer festival or a special winter programme “inside the giant” make the Crystal Worlds a perfect destination for every kind of weather.
