Weekend Trip to Tyrol - Tips & Highlights | Editor: Florian Lieke

Flight attendant Dani is a true Tyrolean. In this article she shows us what a perfect weekend in Tyrol looks like - insider tips included.

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Tyrol?

A visit to the Tyrolean Crystal Worlds

The Swarovski Crystal Worlds include a park, an art museum, a café-restaurant and a shop. Designed by André Heller in 1995, remodeled and reopened in 2015 - what makes the Crystal Worlds so special? The immersion in glittering and sparkling Chambers of Wonder, which seduce you to marvel and dream. You should not miss it!


Opening hours: Daily from Monday to Sunday 8:00 to 19:30.

The Achensee Railway in Tyrol

Even though train fans are rarely to be found on the blog of an airline: In Jenbach the "Achenseebahn" - which has been in operation since 1889 by the way - takes you to the Lake Achensee. In the season from May to October, the steam cogwheel railway travels through woods and meadows 440 meters in altitude to the Achensee. And during Advent season there are also rides through the winter landscape. Crazy and beautiful at the same time!


Tip: The rack railway is timed to coincide with the passenger ships on the Achensee. A subsequent Achensee boat trip is also highly recommended!

The Lake Achensee in Tyrol

The Achensee is often referred to as the sea of the Tyroleans. The water temperature is always relatively low - even if there is no snow. So it is perfect for cooling off on hot summer days!

The region around the lake invites you to feasting, swimming, skiing, boating, collecting mushrooms, drinking spritzers, riding the cable car, surfing, sunbathing, building snowmen, sailing and walking. As already described above, a boat trip is absolutely worthwhile.

The food in Tyrol

The food should not be missed out on any visit to Tyrol - and especially not when mum or grandma are cooking up! Mushroom goulash with bacon, Kaiserschmarren or rather Kasspatzln? There is something for everyone at the family meals! Including hot chocolate with whipped cream or a schnapps after dinner. In Innsbruck you can experience regional cuisine at die Wilderin or at the Gasthaus Restaurant Buzihütte. If you want to taste the Tyrolean cuisine at the Achensee, I recommend the Gasthof Dorfwirt or the Sennhütte Falzthurn. If you dare to go to the skiing area Sölden, you should definitely visit the Alpine Pasture Gampe Thaya. Atmosphere, food and views are unbeatable!
