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, the roof of Tyrol, is, thanks to its high altitude, one of the most snow sure holiday destinations in the entire Alpine region. It is situated between the Ötztal and Kaunertal valleys, offering winter sports people and leisure holiday makers both high Alpine challenges and pure romance. The Pitztal glacier, the highest ski area in all Austria, rises to 3440 m above sea level and is open from September through to May. The Riffelsee ski area is linked with the glacier, and attracts advanced skiers with its steep runs. Just a few kilometres down the valley is the Hochzeiger, an attractive family ski area with plenty of accommodation options right next to the piste in the middle of this snowy paradise. The 4 resorts of Arzl, Wenns, Jerzens and St. Leonhard have a population of 7400, with 8300 guest beds of all categories, from 4 star superior hotels through to cosy holiday apartments.
