Austrian Winter Wonderland - Jewel of the Alps

Austrian Winter Wonderland - Jewel of the Alps

Picturesque snow-capped mountains and warm mulled wine, just what winter ordered! Explore the capital of the Tyrol, Innsbruck and take a trip up the Nordketten train and cable car for spectacular views of the Austrian Alps!

Austrian Winter Wonderland & Jewel of the Alps            

 

Austria is without a doubt one of the most enchantingly beautiful destinations to visit whatever the season, but is best viewed in winter, when the country experiences generous snowfalls, transforming it into almost fairy-tale proportions. 

Presenting a beautiful, unspoilt alpine backdrop of snow-laced mountains with the freezing waters of the River Inn flowing through the middle of the city, picturesque Innsbruck appeals to and draws visitors from all walks of life, and it’s not hard to understand why.  A perfect fusion of urban and outdoor, there is something to appeal to everyone – be it the adrenaline junkies flocking to this internationally renowned sports hub (and home of the – frankly terrifying – Bergisel Ski Jump), the history enthusiasts taking in the stunning architectural gems or walking in the footsteps of the famed Habsburg empire or those simply wishing to soak in the cosy, romantic atmosphere provided by the spectacular seasonal lights strewn amongst the trees and buildings. 

Standing guard at the heart of Innsbruck is the ‘Jewel of the Alps’, the Nordkette Mountain Range.  Part of Austria’s largest nature park, it can be reached directly from Innsbruck city centre through an interesting elevator system which is part train alternating into a cable car at a station en route.  This journey offers stunning panoramic views, crisp air and the once in a lifetime opportunity to scale a mountain effortlessly. 

 

One can’t visit the Tyrol region without sampling the local produce and hospitality!  Overlooked by the breath-taking Ziller Valley’s mountains, the family-run Zillertal Dairy has chosen near-natural management and sustainable methods and is currently the only milk-production facility awarded a triple quality guarantee.  With the chance to take a look behind the scenes at the farm that produces everything from dried bacon and tangy mountain cheese to delicious schnapps.
