Tyrol is a state or Bundesland, located in the west of Austria. It comprises the Austrian part of the historical region of Tyrol. The state is split into two parts - called North Tyrol and East Tyrol - by a 20km-wide strip of land where the state of Salzburg borders directly on the Italian Province of Bolzano-Bozen (Alto Adige/South Tyrol). North Tyrol borders Bavaria (Germany) in the north, the state of Vorarlberg in the west, Italy and Switzerland in the south and Salzburg in the east. East Tyrol also borders Carinthia in the east.

The highest mountain in the state is the Großglockner in the Hohe Tauern, with an elevation of 3,798 m (12,461 ft.). This is second only to the highest mountain of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, the Ortler, 3,905 m (12,812 ft.). The capital is Innsbruck. The town is known for its university, especially the modern techniques in medicine. Tyrol is popular for its famous skiing resorts, such as Kitzbühel, Ischgl or St. Anton. Other larger towns are Kufstein, Schwaz, Reutte and Landeck.

Goldenes Dachl / Golden Roof

Museum Tiroler Bauernhöfe
Between Innsbruck and Kufstein - in the field of Kramsacher lakes - in 1974 the Tyrolean Air Museum was founded. Ein wenig abseits der Landstraße Kramsach-Breitenbach, östlich des Reintaler Sees, durch Terrassen und Hügelreihen gegliedert, ist das Gelände in ruhiger Lage zu finden. A little off the road Kramsach-Breitenbach, Reintaler east of the lake, with terraced hills and rows of structured, the terrain is in a quiet location to find.


Zell am Ziller Parish Church
Situated on 479 kilometers west of the capitol Vienna and just sixty kilometers east of Innsbruck. This town, which once has gold-mining industry definitely merits a visit, but don not confuse it with Zell am See in Land Salzburg.
