Sights & excursion destinations in Tyrol

The wonderful west of Austria: Innsbruck, Kitzbühel and Fieberbrunn

Experiencing Tyrol with the Austria Trend Hotels – the Hotel Congress Innsbruck **** makes that possible! Find out what Tyrol has to offer besides being the “capital of the Alps”. And why the west of Austria is particularly enticing for families.

Excursion destinations in and around the Tyrolean capital

As a capital city, Innsbruck is a must when you’re visiting Tyrol! No matter if you check in directly at the Austria Trend Hotel in Innsbruck or just spend a day there. Lovers of culture and the arts are drawn to the Tyrolean State Museum or the picturesque Old Town. The Goldenes Dachl (golden roof) is only one attraction of many but certainly one of the most famous ones.

The “capital of the Alps” is also perfect for shopping. How about a visit to the first shopping centre in Austria? The DEZ is located in the district of Amras. And the shopping centre Sillpark and the Markthalle offer plenty of diverse shopping possibilities as well. For specialities, you should stop by at the Speckeria or the S’Culinarium in the Old Town.

The city has something to offer for lovers of music and fans of sports, too! The Innsbruck Early Music Festival invites you to an acoustic journey back in time. Experience the sound of the baroque and the renaissance at the most beautiful buildings in the city. And the Nordkettenbahn cable car takes you from the city centre up into the Tyrolean mountains in only about 20 minutes.


You would like to experience Tyrol beyond Innsbruck’s city limits? Then the ErlebnisSennerei Zillertal is a true culinary insider’s tip! Experience the entire process that pasture milk undergoes – from the cow to the finished and ripened cheese. Find out more about their high-quality products and – more importantly: Taste Tyrol in an entirely unique way!

Tyrol for the whole family – to go, please!

You and your family are heading to Innsbruck? Then you have to pay the Audioversum a visit! During different family tours, workshops and narrative theatre performances, the senses are sharpened at this interactive world of experiences. Speaking of theatre: Innsbruck is also home to the Tyrolean Landestheater (state theatre). Perfect for culture fans young and old!

The Swarovski Kristallwelten offer an equally exciting programme of activities – just much more sparkling. Especially children love to romp about at the playground and play tower in the Southern garden. Animal lovers get their money’s worth at the Alpenzoo Innsbruck. Special family days and children’s discounts make this excursion destination perfect even for those on a tighter budget.

In Kitzbühel, it’s all about nature and sports! The Hahnenkammbahn promises leisure time fun at its best. If you’d like to breathe some Ski World Cup air, you can visit the famous “Streif”. The cable car museum is always worth a visit, too. And things get wild at the wildlife park Aurach where you can feed llamas, sheep, ponies, rabbits and guinea pigs.

Time to feed your family? The Alpengasthof Oberweissbach serves typical Tyrolean cuisine. And it also has a meadow with slides, swing sets, a witch house and duck enclosure. You’re more in the mood for cultural activities? If you’re interested in traditional mining, the tourist mine Kupferplatte is perfect for you.

Small but mighty – Fieberbrunn has a lot to offer for children! As a space for children’s culture, the MuKu (music and culture society) St. Johann is both cinema and concert hall. Delicious food is served at the Ausflugsgasthaus Großlehen. This farm amidst the Kitzbühel Alps also has a forest rope course, a mini-golf area and a natural swimming pond.

Little scientists and explorers are going to love the Triassic Park at the Tyrolean Pillerseetal valley. In summer, this adventure park takes you back to days long past. “Full steam ahead!” at the adventure park Streuböden. That’s where Timoks Alm Coaster takes you down the mountain (at your preferred speed) and all the way back up – in summer and in winter!
