Tyrol is as pure alpine as Austria gets, with mountains that make you want to yodel out loud and patchwork pastures chiming with cowbells. After the first proper dump of snow in winter, it's a Christmas-card scene, with snow-frosted forests and skiers whizzing down some of the finest slopes in Europe.
As mentioned, the Tyrolean Alps will take your breath away, and they are largely responsible for bringing the tourists in. The tallest mountain in Austria, Mt. Grossglockner, can be found in Tyrol and it is part of the high-rising Hohe Tauern range. Taking a drive through this mountainous area is a pure delight, and as a result, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is one of the country's top tourist attractions. Cutting through Tyrol Austria are a series of rivers and valleys that help to define the region's beauty.
Pristine alpine lakes are in good abundance too, and fishing in both the rivers and lakes is a prime summertime activity. For some of the best Tyrol Austria fishing, head to the town of Kossen, which is northeast of Innsbruck. It's actually closer to Salzburg , making it a good day trip from there as well. You can purchase a fishing license in Kossen and head to the area lakes or see what the Weissenbach and Kolhback rivers have going on. The trout fishing is excellent. In addition to fishing, hiking and mountain climbing are some of the things that you can do in Tyrol Austria.
The Tyrolean Alps are the tops when it comes to Austria hiking and mountaineering, and for those who are interested, you can even climb an icy glacier in the summer! Numerous hiking trails can be found in Tyrol for those who want to keep their trekking to a more subdued level, though advanced hiking is possible should you want a more grueling experience.
Golf, bicycling , and whitewater rafting are other summertime activities that help to make Tyrol Austria such a stunning travel destination. As for Tyrol skiing, you will be hard-pressed to find a better experience elsewhere. Many European skiers prefer the Tyrolean Alps to those found in Switzerland , for example, and there are slopes here for all levels of skiers. Innsbruck is the top winter vacation destination in Tyrol Austria, and there are scores of great Innsbruck hotels where you can cozy up to a nice fire after a full day of mashing your way through powder.
Seefeld is one of the top Innsbruck ski areas, and at nearby Kitzbuhel, you'll find another top area hangout. They expanded their holdings at those bishoprics' expense. In , rulership of the County passed by inheritance to the Meinhardiner family.
In , the last male heir to the Meinhardiner lands, Henry of Bohemia , died. His daughter, Margaret , thereupon became Countess of Tyrol; but her title was in doubt because of different laws in different lands as to what a woman could or could not inherit.
She navigated her way between the competing claims of the Houses of Wittelsbach, Luxembourg and Habsburg by, in , marrying Louis of Wittelsbach. Louis died in Margaret died in , and bequeathed Tyrol to Rudolf of Habsburg. When the Habsburgs took control of Tyrol, it had roughly its modern size. However, the Unterinntal downstream from Schwaz still belonged to Bavaria; the Zillertal and Brixental to Salzburg ; Brixen and the Pustertal were episcopal territories, or part of the County of Gorizia.
On the other hand, the Montafon and the Unterengadin were Tyrolean. Tyrol was of great strategic importance to the Habsburgs. It controlled several important Alpine passes. It connected their landholdings in Further Austria. In , as the Habsburg lands were split up by inheritance, Tyrol once again became a separate entity a Landstand , in which the greater landowners had the right to be consulted Mitspracherecht.
During a confusing succession of events, in Frederick IV, Duke of Austria moved the capital of Tyrol from Meran to Innsbruck , and Meran lost its earlier importance. The aim is to strengthen cooperation between the separated countries. Cross-border projects will be initiated to improve the relationship between the different language groups. To represent common ideas and values in Europe, the Euroregion has a joint office in Brussels since Joint decisions are taken by organized three diet in German: Dreier-Landtag , which have been held since mostly every two to three years with the state Diets of Trento provincial council of Trentino , Bolzano provincial council of South Tyrol and Innsbruck state council of Tyrol State.
In , the region was institutionalized and since then has its own legal entity. The multiplicity of parties is due to the fact that Tyrol lies in two different nation states and thus are politically independent of each other. Another reason for the large number of parties is the great independence of the two Provinces of Bolzano and Trento.
By the second statute of autonomy in , the province of Bolzano acquired much of the region's competences and since then has been mostly independent of the province of Trento. The second autonomy statute enabled the linguistic minorities to be better protected. Thus, many parties determine their focus within the provinces. Other parties in Trentino-South Tyrol , especially in South Tyrol, were founded on the example of Austrian parties and have many similarities with the parties in Austria.
In the economic sector statistics are shown, which are based largely on numbers and data of the Euroregion Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino. It lacks individual communities that are outside the Euroregion. As there are no 10, inhabitants living in these communities, the statistics hardly distort the territory of Tyrol and the remaining 1.
Tyrol had a total GDP of Divided into individual countries, the State of Tyrol generated The unemployment rate in the State of Tyrol is 3. Agriculture and forestry occupy a special position in Tyrol.
The many small and medium-sized farms have shaped the landscape and culture in Tyrol for many centuries. In order to be competitive with larger farms outside Tyrol, there is a strong cooperative system in Tyrol. South of Tyrol, in the Region of Trentino-South Tyrol , the cultivation of apples and wine plays an important role. So every tenth apple in Europe comes from South Tyrol. Mainly cattle, sheep, goats and pigs are kept. Horses also play an increasingly important role in livestock, for equestrian sports and farm holidays.
The Haflinger horses are known in the Tyrolean region and originate from Hafling , near Merano. The first industrialization reached Tyrol late in the 19th century. Most of these were small businesses that were important only in the local area. A second wave of industrialization took place at the beginning of the 20th century.
Particularly affected at that time was the city of Bolzano with the Italianization policy under Fascism in the s. Thus lies Tyrol in the EU average at The industry in Tyrol consists mostly of small and medium-sized companies. The craft still plays a special role throughout the region. A large part of these craft businesses are still partially small-structured and family businesses.
From an economic point of view, the energy sector is important in the secondary sector. Much of the electricity produced is generated by hydropower.
The most important sector in Tyrol is the tertiary sector. Especially tourism has a special position in this region. Due to the connection of the areas by the railway in the 19th century, many villages in Tyrol developed into popular tourism locations.
The construction of the Brenner motorway in the s gave region in the 20th century a renewed upswing in the tourism branch. In , the Euroregion counted over 80 million  overnight stays in the Tyrolean region to compare - Province of Rome in Also important for Tyrol is the trade. Among other things, the Exhibition of Bolzano has been a meeting point for Italian and German economy already for centuries. As a transit route country, more than 2.
Tyrol is known as a transit route. The most important route between northern and southern Europe, the Brenner route, traverses the entire region. At m above the Adriatic, the Brenner Pass is the lowest pass crossing of the main chain of the Alps.
Due to the linguistic diversity and the climatic transition from temperate climate alpine climate to mediterranean climate , the area is regarded as a bridge between the Italian and German speaking countries. The most important airport in Tyrol is Innsbruck Airport. With over one million passengers, it is the third largest airport in Austria.
These do not offer regular scheduled flights and the Bolzano Airport currently offers charter flights. There are other small airfields in Toblach , Kufstein , St.
Johann in Tirol , Reutte and Cortina. The airfield in Cortina was closed in due to a crash. Highways in Tyrol are the Brenner motorway and the Inntal motorway. A large part of this route is dual-lane and flows into the Brenner state road SS Due to the Alps , there are many mountain passes that connect valleys. The most important pass roads for transit trade are the Reschen Pass and Brenner Pass. The Provinces of Trento and Bolzano have been responsible for the preservation and management of the state roads in their provinces since Together with the Lower Inn Valley Railway in North Tyrol , this section of the route is part of the important European railway axis Berlin-Palermo , which connects northern Europe with southern Europe across the Alps.
With the construction of the Brenner Base Tunnel and its completion in , transit traffic on the rail will be promoted and relocated. Cross-border connections are offered only a few. The Euroregion Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino has set itself the goal of promoting and expanding cross-border connections. The aim is to shift traffic through the Alps to sustainable means of transport, thus protecting the Alpine environment.
Many villages and communities are difficult to reach because of the large differences in altitude, so the region sets much on ropeway concepts. Although most of the cable cars are located in ski resorts, they are also used for the local public transport. Known cable cars in Tyrol are the Ritten cable car in Bolzano , the Sardagna cable car in Trento and the Nordkette cable car in Innsbruck.
Also funicular railways are being built to cope with the differences in altitude more quickly. Famous funiculars are among others the Hungerburgbahn in Innsbruck and the Mendel funicular in Kaltern. Local public transport is usually offered with intercity buses or city buses. The city of Innsbruck has its own tram network. Another tram is located in Ritten. The cities of Bolzano , Merano and Trento formerly had their own tram network, but these were displaced and replaced by the city buses and private transport in the 50s and 60s.
The Tyrolean culture has been cultivated for several centuries and passed on to future generations. The state border between South and North Tyrol is more a political border and is considered less as a cultural border.
Many traditions are cultivated throughout the Tyrolean region and show little differences. In all cultural areas such as food, dress or customs there are many similarities. Nevertheless, the individual language groups, especially the minority languages, try to maintain and promote their own linguistic identity.
The Tyrolean cuisine has similarities with the Austrian cuisine and is characterized by its alpine influence. Also the historical influence of the former K. Monarchy can be found in the Tyrolean dishes. These include dishes such as goulash , Kaiserschmarrn and apple strudel which are consumed in large parts of the Danube monarchy and today still in Tyrol. Since the region is still relatively strong agricultural and peasant today, also many peasant dishes are offered on the farms.
Schlutzkrapfen , boiled dumplings or cold cuts with bacon in German: Speck or grey cheese is eaten on the farms. The Tyrolean dishes show only slight differences throughout Tyrol. Due to the Mediterranean conditions in the southern part of Tyrol, a lot of wine is grown and is therefore also an important part of the Tyrolean dish, especially in South Tyrol and Trentino.
In this region also a food culture is cultivated with a mixture of Italian and Tyrolean specialties. The Tyrolean Rifles were a militia organised in case of an attack on crown land , which required Tyrol to defend its territory.
The militia consisted mostly of citizens and peasants who were responsible only for the defence of their own land and were not obliged to go to war on behalf of the Habsburg Monarchy. They were authorised by an order signed by Emperor Maximilian I in that remained valid until The Tyrolean Rifles became known in when Tyrolese peasants rose up and fought against the French-Bavarian occupation under Napoleon. The ensuing four Battles of Bergisel were led by Andreas Hofer.
After the separation of Tyrol and the downfall of the monarchy, the companies also lost their task of defending their country. Nevertheless, they remained as a non-governmental organization. Today, the Rifles are responsible as an organization for the preservation of the Tyrolean culture and are always present at important political events in Tyrol. Many Tyrolean customs were created centuries ago and are passed on by the population for the next generations.
Typical in the Alpine region are the many individual customs in the valleys. Due to the seclusion of the valleys, the locals developed their own customs.
Many customs have been created by legends and narratives, others by the close connection to the church. There are also traditions that are cultivated everywhere in the Tyrolean region and do not differ from other valleys and villages.
These customs give local people an identity and thus feel the community more connected. Krampus in Toblach. Typical in the alpine region. Tyrol is traditionally a winter sports country. Even in summer sports, several athletes from Tyrol were and still are among the best in the world. In water jumping Tania Cagnotto and Klaus Dibiasi won several medals.
