Tirol

With 12,648 sq. km and 675,000 inhabitants, Tirol is Austria´s third largest province. Only 13 % of the entire country are habitable. About 20 % of Tirol´s landscape was declared nature preserve. Provincial capital is Innsbruck.

Tirol shares borders with Germany (Bavaria), Italy (South Tirol) and Switzerland as well as the provinces of Vorarlberg, Salzburg and Carinthia. When South Tirol was ceded to Italy in 1919, East Tirol was isolated from the rest of Tirol and is now only accessible via Salzburg (Felbertauern tunnel) or Italy (Pustertal valley).

 

Tirol has a great variety of top-notch ski resorts. There are gentle nursery slopes in picturesque surroundings to inspire any first time skier, a well as world-class serious terrain to satisfy even the extreme skiers´ heart.

Some of the best resorts include Innsbruck and environs, Wipptal, Stubaital, Seefeld plateau, Mieming plateau, Ötztal Alps, Arlberg - Silvretta - Oberinntal area, Außerfern, Unterinntal and its side valleys, Kaiser mountains, Kitzbühel Alps and East Tirol.

Beautiful tracks are offered in Seefeld, Mieming, Leutaschtal, Außerfern, Zillertal, Tuxertal, around the Kitzbühel Alps and the Kaiser mountain range.
