Holidaying in the mountains means escaping everyday life for a while and taking a break. Arriving out-of-breath at the top of a mountain; sitting in the warm sun to dry off after swimming in a crystal-clear mountain lake; hiking through magical forests – no matter what holidaying in the mountains means to you, you will remember your time in Tyrol for many years to come.

Tyrol is a beautifully-diverse region in western Austria with many unique highlights. The hikes in this Collection take you to: the Achensee, the largest lake in the province situated between the Karwendel and Rofan mountains; the Zillertal valley where high-alpine landscapes will both amaze and challenge you; the Kufsteinerland on either side of the Inn Valley where you hike through grasslands and rocky mountains; the town of St. Johann in Tirol nestled in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps which offers magnificent views of the Wilder Kaiser peak; the medieval town of Kitzbühel; and the untouched nature of East Tyrol, sandwiched between the Grossglockner and Lienz Dolomites.

Get ready to summit spectacular peaks, explore wild gorges or hike to the calm waters of a mountain lake glistening in the sun. Enjoy some typical local dishes, experience authentic Tyrolean hospitality, and fully unwind on your holiday. If you plan to be away for a long time, you could even complete all of the routes in one go. No matter how you plan your holiday, you are sure to have a great time as far as hiking is concerned.

Travel tip: ÖBB trains leave from Zurich Central Station to Austria every two hours between 6.40 am and 6.40 pm. From bigger stations, you can easily take a regional train to the start of the hikes. The SBB GA card or Halbtax-Abo (Half-Fare Card) also gives you a 15 percent discount on the Austrian part of the route. For more information, including timetables and ticket reservation, see to.austria.info/sbbchoesterreich (in German).
