Tyrol is a land of extremes.
If you would like to know the many sites of this country, we give you some suggestions here.
Strolling through the streets and alleyways you will discover numerous charming details on the carefully restored medieval town houses. But do not overlook the many glass refining businesses which made Rattenberg so well-known as a glass town.
Definitely worth visiting are sights such as the Augustiner Museum, the nailmakers’ houses with the Handicraft Museum, the parish church and the glass blowing workshop in the Kisslinger Haus.
From the Schlossberg castle ruins you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Inn valley. The Schlossberg Plays are held here in July on the romantic open-air stage.
Tyrol’s largest open-air museum is situated near Lake Reintal in Kramsach. An air of nostalgia hangs over the old farms and their interesting pasts.
I feel myself transported to the „Tyrol of old“ and go about discovering these witnesses of a culture of the past. On site there are many outbuildings such as a sawmill, flour mill, blacksmiths, threshing floor or the two chapels. All these buildings were dismantled with great care and rebuilt on site.
Particularly charming is the old school bringing back days long forgotten. The whole museum is brought to life by the animals and colourful farmers gardens.
A varied programme of events, exhibitions and guided museum tours bring life in „the Tyrol of old“ closer".

Documented for the first time in the 13th century the Castle Tratzberg was used as former border stronghold against the Bavarians and as Emperor Maximilian’s I hunting lodge. In the late 15th century the former fortress was destroyed by fire.
After several changes of owners there was a time when Tratzberg was uninhabited for 150 years. When Franz Count Enzenberg married Ottilie Countess Tannenberg in 1847, the rather neglected castle came into the possession of the Enzenberg family, and it has stayed their homestead since then.
Thanks to the family’s dedication and efforts the 6800 sqm castle with its 5000 sqm shingle roof became a gem of a 16th century Tyrolean castle again. It is now one of the most important cultural monuments of the country and open to the public.
We are glad to welcome you in "the mother of all mines". The biggest silver mine of the Middle Ages is open for you daily until November 16.

The Capital of the Alps and it's Cultural Wealth
Tirol's capital has all the cultural diversity!
All important eras – from the Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance to the kk monarchy – take the visitors on a journey back in time. Lovers of modern art will find plenty of galleries and special exhibitions here for a rewarding visit. It’s the diversity that makes Innsbruck interesting.
Innsbruck - the Capital of the Alps - was two-time host of the Olympic Winter Games (1964 and 1976) and has a history of 800 years. The city offers art treasures and is famous for buildings such as the Golden Roof, the Hofburg and Ambras castle. It combines tradition and modernity: city strolls and mountaineering, Baroque operas and folklore music,Tuxedos and Lederhosen.
