Our capital city of Tyrol, Innsbruck, is approximately a one-hour-drive away from the Gallahaus. The city rich in history, tradition, and culture is nestled amidst the mountains with plenty of things to enjoy. The stunning architecture ranges from modern marvels to the 800-year-old Golden Roof in the Old Town, museums, monasteries, or castles. Cultural events, festivals and plenty of excellent shopping opportunities. Further highlights include the Bergisel ski jump and the Tyrol panorama, the Alpenzoo, and the Hungerburg up the mountain directly from the city centre. 

 

The city of glass, Rattenberg, is in the neighbouring Kufstein region. The quaint city is known as an excellent place to stroll and admire charming glass makers' shops. The medieval pedestrian area with traditional craft stores has been well preserved ensuring a unique atmosphere.

 

The Kufstein castle is a stunning building nearby in the Tyrolean Unterland, which towers above the city and offers delightful events for guests of all ages. Explore the entire castle by following the 21 stations along the way, such as the 60 m deep well, the cannons, and the museums.

 

The Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens whisks you away into world of sparkling fantasy. The crystals shimmer in all colours of the rainbow in the various art installations, at one of Austria's most popular tourist attractions.

 

The Achensee is the largest lake in Tyrol, nicknamed the "Fjord of the Alps", and is considered a true hidden gem nestled in the Karwendel- and Rofan mountain ranges. Hop on the steam-rack railway in Jenbach and enjoy the wonderful sights along the way. After arriving the Seespitz boat dock, you can't miss out on the stunning views of the mountains reflect on the emerald green water of the Achensee from the deck of the steam boat.

 

The silver mine in Schwaz is especially popular with children and a cool alternative on hot summer days. Embark on a journey back in time and into the heart of the mountain as you learn more about mine workers in medieval times. The excellent natural properties of the mine site ensured plenty of silver and copper, making Tyrol one of the wealthiest states in Europe.
