Bundesland Tirol Off The Beaten Path

  • Outside Innsbruck

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    If you have some spare time and happen to love medieval towns, then I would suggest taking a 10km drive to HALL IN TIROL. There is public transport available. The historic centre is wonderful, just left how it was! Most of the buildings are from the 15th century. There are many churches and they are wonderful, well worth going inside for a look....

  • Mountains around Innsbruck

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    What a place, and what a memory of climbing this particular place. OK, facts first. Sonnbendjoch is found in the Ursprungspass in the Tyrol overlooking the town of Kramsach. It's one of many stunning peaks, Sonnbendjoch being 1986metres above sea level, the highest being the Rofanspitze at 2259metres, which overlooks the Zireinersee, a small...

  • Dom zu St. Jakob

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    In the rest of the 'off-the-beaten-path' tips I want to give you an impression of the beautiful interior of this cathedral. In this picture you can see the altar of the Dom zu St. Jakob.

  • Schloss Ambras

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    and is definitely worth a visit. The park is quite big and in excellent condition. There is a pond with ducks and black swans, a children playground, botanical garden, mase, fountains waterfalls, brigdes....

  • Graveyards

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    As we came down from the mountain we came into a suburb called Hotting. There was a nice church here that had the most amazing graveyard we'd ever seen. OK, maybe graveyards aren't to everyone's taste, but there are some lovely ones to be found. In Austria we saw lots of them, but this one was the nicest.

  • Outside Austria even

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    If you are staying in Innsbruck for a long time, you could take a trip over to Italy. It's just a few hours drive on the autobahn, and there are lots of great places to explore in the north of Italy. When the winter and the cold has started in Innsbruck, it's still a nice temperature in these places. Going to Merano was one of my favorite...

  • Mariahilfkirche

    Innsbruck Off The Beaten Path

    We sat dining al fresco with the church behind and, even after seeing what Italy had to offer, I still went in and had a peek. I've never been disappointed doing that in Europe; from Mainz to Monreale, they all have something to offer and, what a pleasant backdrop to lunch.

  • Unlimited snowy pleasure...

    Choose your Off The Beaten Slope and Go Ahead!!!Respect the local regulations and be aware of the current avalanche report.

  • Going

    A tiny village a short stroll from Ellmau. Blink and you could miss it but its a little gem with its tranquil village centre and stunning views of the Wilder Kaiser range. Being here on our last day of our trip in May 2004 made me realise I really didn't want to go home yet - a couple more days here to hike in those hills would have been bliss.

  • Telfs

    The town of Telfs in the Inn Valley is a working market town rather than a tourist town in the Tirol but I include it here as it was the first placed we stayed at - well just across the river in its neighbouring village of Pfaffenhofen (isn't that a great name!).We made many a train journey from Telfs to places all over this area of Austria and...

  • Because of the natural...

    Because of the natural splendour of the Alps, the Austrian towns are sometimes left aside. However, here is also some beauty to be seen and if you don't know what to do on a rainy day, you can deside to visit beautiful Innsbruck or Salzburg or many other pictoresk village in the neighborhood. Sometimes they even have little museums about the...

  • And this is one of the...

    And this is one of the craziest and most surrealistic sights I've ever seen! The village Resia/Reschen just over the Austrian border on the Italian side was once (about 60 years ago) located where there is now an artificial lake. It was rebuilt on the shore, but the original settlement can still be found where it was. The proof is the church spire...

  • Since nobody on VT has ever...

    Since nobody on VT has ever mentioned Glurns, let me be the first to do so (although the photo is not mine but borrowed from its homepage). So: I'm talking about yet another fairytale town (on the Italian side), the only one in Tirol surrounded by walls. Although you can easily 'cover' it in half an hour, it's surely worth a stop.

    The cemetery in front of the chapel. A metaphor for peace, if you ask me. They could export silence from these parts to the noisy cities!
