Places to visit in the area
Innsbruck is the cultural capital of Tyrol. Among the sights worth visiting is the Spitalkirche which dates back to 1320. The best known building in Innsbruck is “das Haus mit dem Goldenen Dachl”. The roof of this building is said to have been tiled with 2,680 gilded copper tiles. The Hofkirche, built as a mausoleum to emperor Maximilian, is accessed via the Tiroler Volksmuseum. Kufstein
The small Tyrolean town of Kufstein (503 m above sea level), also known as the “Perle Tirols” (the Pearl of Tirol), is situated at the foot of the “Zahmen” and “Wilde Kaiser” protected nature reserve and on the “green” river Inn. The town’s charm and appeal lies in its many exciting contrasts. Age-old culture competes with awe-inspiring natural scenery. The town’s main landmark and tourist attraction is the Kufstein Fortress. This town is also home to the so-called Heldenorgel (Heroes’ organ), reportedly the biggest outdoor organ in the world with 4,307 pipes. Mittersill
Mittersill is situated in the centre of the Oberpinzgau region and as such has a real market purpose. Everyone in the valley comes into Mittersill to do their shopping. The village is particularly famous for being the home of the factory where the well-known, high-quality Blizzard skis are produced. You can buy these skis on the company premises at discounted prices. There are a fair amount of cosy bars and restaurants in the village. Also lovely, and romantic at that, are the horse-sleigh rides which are organised on a regular basis. Mayrhofen
Mayrhofen enjoys an idyllic location at an altitude of 630 m in the Zillertal, in the heart of Tyrol. Nestled in a green valley, set against a backdrop of the awe-inspiring mountain scenery of the Zillertaler main ridge. Many mountain giants with lush green meadows and white mountaintops dominate this unspoilt, romantic landscape. The peaks of this splendid mountain world surrounding this idyllic village reach over 3,000 m into the sky. This is a place where tradition and international flair go hand in hand. There are cosy, old mountain huts, rural traditional dress and Tyrolean music but also modern bars, boutiques and nightclub beats.
