Our excursion tips for your perfect holiday in Tyrol

There is a lot to offer in the neighboring villages of Reith, Aurach or Jochberg - the farmhouse museum, wildlife park or Drachensteig at the Sintersbacher waterfall are only a stone's throw away from Kitzbühel.

There is also a lot to discover in the surrounding regions. Be it a visit to a schnapps distillery, a gorge hike or a tour to Austria's highest mountain, the Großglockner. Are you more of a city trip, e.g. to the fortress town of Kufstein or our state capital Innsbruck, or do you prefer a quiet day fishing in the pond? There is all sorts of things to find for each of our guests.

Kitzbühel, in the heart of the Alps

Day trips are easy and uncomplicated in all directions. Be it by train (ÖBB Einfach-Raus-Ticket), the regional bus network (VVT), by bike or e-bike on the cycle paths or with your own car.

Holiday in Kitzbühel


day trips

We can recommend a trip to cool off here:

Breathtaking - Europe's largest waterfalls, the Krimml Waterfall

Imposing world of water, rock and electricity high above Zell am See-Kaprun reservoirs Kaprun

To the highest mountain in Austria at 3798 m, the Großglockner

The Zeller See lies entirely in the municipality of the city of Zell am See in Pinzgau in the Salzburg region. It was formed at the end of the last ice age about 10,000 to 16,000 years ago through an excavation caused by the ice masses of the northern Glockner group.

The Achensee is north of Jenbach in Tyrol, 380 m above the Inn valley. Together with the Achental, it forms the border between the Karwendel Mountains in the west and the Brandenberger Alps in the east

The Chiemsee, also known as the Bavarian Sea, is the largest lake in Bavaria with an area of ​​79.9 km² and the third largest lake in Germany after Lake Constance and Müritz. In Bavaria, however, Lake Starnberg has a volume of water that is half as large.

Are you interested in the Middle Ages? So here are some suggestions for you:

Kufstein Fortress
The Kufstein Fortress is the landmark of the city of Kufstein and is one of the most imposing medieval buildings in Tyrol. The fortress is often incorrectly called fortress Geroldseck. It is located on the fortress mountain above the town of Kufstein on a 90 m high rock directly on the Inn and can be reached by inclined elevator.

Tratzberg Castle
The renaissance jewel among the castles in Austria. It was first mentioned in a document in the 13th century and, as a former border fortress against Bavaria, already served Emperor Maximilian I as a hunting lodge. However, the original fortified castle was completely destroyed in a fire in the late 15th century.

Mittersill Castle
On the northern slope of the Salzach Valley, it lies on a spur high above the valley floor. The castle has served since the Middle Ages for the strategic control of the valley road of the Oberpinzgau and the pass roads to Tyrol, which run from there to the Thurn Pass in the north and to the Felbertauern in the south. The area was particularly important for transalpine traffic between the 10th and 14th centuries.

To bring a little variety to your vacation, a visit to a show farm is worthwhile.

Come to the cheese tasting at Kasplatzl in Aschau, the Wilder Käser in Gasteig or the Niederkaseralm in Kelchsau.

You can find out everything about glass and glasses at Riedl - the wine glass company in Kufstein or at Kisslinger Glas in Rattenberg

Also worth seeing are the Hall coinage and of course the planetarium in Schwaz

You can experience a lot of culture, history and the city flair here:

Tyrol's capital Innsbruck

The Mozart city of Salzburg

The cosmopolitan city of Munich


The Swarovski Crystal Worlds were opened in 1995 on the occasion of the company's centenary. The multimedia artist André Heller designed a unique place of imagination. To date, this popular sight and excursion destination in Tyrol has given more than 15 million visitors from all over the world moments of amazement. Visitors were surprised, touched, maybe even transformed by crystal in all its facets.
