Tyrol is located in the Austrian Alps and is the federal state with the most mountains. Well over 500 of them exceed the 3,000-metre mark. Beautiful mountain lakes, snow-covered peaks and magnificent views included. Lake Rifflsee, for example, is the highest mountain lake in Austria and is located in the Kaunergrat in the Ötztal Alps. On the border between Tyrol and Carinthia lies the Großglockner, Austria's highest mountain. The Großvenediger, on the other hand, with its 3,657 metres in altitude, runs between East Tyrol and Salzburg.
Anyone who wants to indulge in culinary delights is more than in good hands in Tyrol - at least if you love hearty cuisine. Tyrolean Gröstl and Tiroler Pfandl, bacon and cheese dumplings and a hearty Brettljause are classics in the mountainous province. For dessert, there are traditional Tyrolean kiachl. These are basically farmers' doughnuts.
Apart from mountains and delicious delicacies, there are of course other sights in Tyrol, first and foremost the Golden Roof in Innsbruck. The beautiful oriel was built between 1497 and 1500 and covered with 2,657 gold-plated copper shingles.
Tyrol still has one very special highlight to offer: Area 47, Austria's largest outdoor leisure park. On more than 9 hectares, it delights its visitors with water parks, opportunities for rafting, canyoning, mountain biking and climbing. While some people find the 5-metre jumping tower too high, Area 47 offers absolute pros a 27-metre jumping tower.
