Discovery Journey Tirol

Tirol doesn't only have some of the Alps' most breathtaking peaks, but an immense wealth of culture tucked away in its valleys. In places like the Ötztal valley you can ski, hike, and bike in the stunning outdoors and enjoy an international food and culture scene at the same time. Innsbruck combines its own Alpine playground with the Imperial charm and historic treasures of the Habsburgs.
