summer in Tyrol

Summer, sun, holiday diversity in the Tyrolean Oberland!

Experience the diversity of the Tyrolean summer

Lie back and relax, feel the sun’s rays on your stomach and simply do nothing.

Yes, that’s exactly how to enjoy summer in the Tyrolean Oberland. But to be honest: you’d be missing out! Because it would be a shame to spend the sunny season in the Tyrolean Oberland just enjoying the sweet pleasure of doing nothing.

After all, the tri-country region offers almost endless possibilities for sporting mountain adventures, fun family activities and chilled concert evenings. So get out in the fresh air and dive into the holiday fun!

Hiking and mountain climbing in the Tyrolean Oberland

Reach for the stars

No fluffy clouds in the shining blue sky, glistening snowfields on the peaks, every now and then a brightly coloured little Alpine flower twinkles in the sunlight. It’s not for nothing that the Tyrolean Oberland is known as a true paradise for walkers.

Whether you’re a passionate hiker, an occasional walker or a true fan: with more than 300 kilometres of marked hiking and mountain trails, every mountain lover will feel fulfilled. On top of all that, there are quaint mountain huts, picturesque lodges, spectacular gorges and cascading waterfalls – no wonder that so many visitors can’t bring themselves to take off their walking boots! 

You can't wait for it? Discover the most beautiful hiking routes for your next holiday!

Via Claudia Augusta - from the peak to the sea

For everyone for whom a day’s hike isn’t enough by far, the Tyrolean Oberland has a special treat in store. After all, the famous long-distance hiking route Via Claudia Augusta, which starts in the German town of Donauwörth and continues all the way to Venice, passes right through the beautiful Tyrolean Oberland! In the last few years, the breath-taking path along the Roman road has been extensively restored and signposted, therefore guaranteeing unadulterated long-distance hiking fun!

Have you been dreaming for a while about trekking across Austria’s most beautiful peak in the direction of Bella Italia?
 

Cycling in the Tyrolean mountains

In the saddle, get ready, go!

If you enjoy spending your holiday cycling, you’ll find a true eldorado in the immediate proximity of the tri-country bike area around the Reschen Pass. Whether mountain biking up to the peaks or on a road bike on the Kaunertal Glacier Road, or rather letting an e-bike take the strain on the Via Claudia Augusta & the River Inn cycle route – the Tyrolean Oberland is absolutely the ideal spot to hop up onto the saddle!

Tip to prevent sore muscles: One of the 22 mountain lifts will comfortably do the work for you, taking you up 15,000 of the 32,000 metres!

MTB extra:With the free Summercard you can take part free of charge in umpteen guided mountain bike tours in the region. Take a look right here at the current weekly programme !

Off into the horizon: long-distance cycle routes

There’s nothing long-distance hikers can do that passionate cyclists can’t also do! After all, there are three wonderful long-distance cycle routes that take you through the Tyrolean Oberland or into the immediate surroundings. Attach the saddle bags and set off into the horizon – on the Via Claudia Augusta, the River Inn cycle route or the Etschtal valley cycle route!

Mission: Diversity!

A holiday for all tastes

Even though a holiday in the Tyrolean Oberland could be spent exclusively on the superb hiking and cycling paths of the region, the diverse holiday destination has more to offer! However it is that you like to keep active on holiday: In the Tyrolean Oberland you’ll be sure to find the best conditions for keeping active.
Fancy blowing off steam in a tennis match or a game of beach volleyball, or getting the adrenaline pumping with canyoning, rafting or climbing? Recharging the batteries with Nordic walking? Discovering the region on horseback or paragliding from above? A single summer is barely enough to try out all the sport that the Tyrolean Oberland has to offer!

 

Plenty of culture and events

With so much sport and nature, it is of course important not to miss out on culture in your holiday! The Tyrolean Oberland entices visitors all summer long with numerous cultural sights as well as diverse events.

Experience history close-up at the Finstermünz Fortress or uncover the enchanting ruins of Siegmundsried Castle. Or how about a visit to the Serfauser Lauser museum to immerse yourself in the life of farming?

And what could be a more beautiful place to spend a mild summer night than a summer night festival? Take in the sounds of the band and let yourself be captivated by the traditional festivities!

Good catch in the Tyrolean Oberland

From grayling to trout and char

Cast the fishing line into crystal-clear water, surrounded by a magnificent mountain panorama. Beautiful serenity and maximum immersion in nature. Hardly surprising that fishing is becoming increasingly popular as a hobby! In the Tyrolean Oberland, the chars and trouts, graylings and pikes splash around in wild brooks, deep-blue lakes and spacious fishponds. All you need is the right bait and a bit of patience!

Is your fishing box bursting at the seams and you can hardly wait to go and catch some fish?
