The Tyrol region

Original, traditional, massive, majestic, and nature in its purest form are all words that spring to mind when describing the region of Tyrol, but it is more than these! Renowned for sport and high society, pleasure and activities are the main things here for Ötzi and the Yeti! Tyrol’s mountains are open to everyone, as is the bustle of the old towns, in summer as in winter. The 36 regions of Tyrol all offer charm, friendliness, and hospitality. The genuine Tyrolean humour makes you feel like joining in with the yodelling, singing, and dancing.

The Kitzbühel mountains stretch from the Zillertal in the west to Zell am See in the east and the region contains many well known places like Kitzbühel, Brixen, Westendorf, St. Johann in Tyrol, and Wörgl. The tourist region of Kaiserwinkl houses the 4 municipalities of Kössen, Walchsee, Schwendt, and Rettenschöss, which are in the districts of Kufstein and Kitzbühel.

The Pitztal Valley, one of the most beautiful and unspoiled tributary valleys of the Eastern Alps, lies hidden between the Ötztal and Kaunertal valleys. The road from Imst takes you a good 40 km up, with steep cliffs rising up to the right and left, and gigantic waterfalls. The villages in Tyrol before the highest glacier (3440 m)  are already 1700 m above sea level, with high Alpine challenges beginning right on your doorstep. The region attracts visitors in summer with its top sports events and numerous festivals where guests rapidly change from visitors to friends. Holidaymakers appreciate the genuine cordiality of the Pitztal people, the unspoiled nature, and the friendly atmosphere of the place. Arzl, Wenns, Jerzens and St. Leonhard have a total population of 7400 between them.
