Top 10 things to do in Tyrol

Tyrol

A province in the Alps that may feel like a fairy tale

Full of romantic lakes and castles and beer drinking lederhosen clad locals playing ump-papa music and marching in bands, the place can seem a bit fairy tale to the visitor at times because it is! Innsbruck and Bolzano/Bozen are the only real "bigger" cities making it a natural paradise too. The roads get clogged with tourists however in the summer and winter months. Tyrol is popular for its famous ski resorts, which include Kitzbühel, Ischgl and St. Anton.
