Tyrol

Tyrol is known as a land of mountains. They rise proudly, their peaks striving towards the heavens, setting a new crown upon the world. Sublime. And somehow, much higher and mightier than elsewhere. And the air is fragrant with wild herbs, accompanying the wind in its flight… Tyrol is known as a land of mountains. They rise proudly, their peaks striving towards the heavens, setting a new crown upon the world. Sublime. And somehow, much higher and mightier than elsewhere. And the air is fragrant with wild herbs, accompanying the wind in its flight… Here we find delightful farms bedecked in blossoms, pristine rivers and wetlands. The hill farmers lead life in their own way. So, too, the house cats and Haflinger horses, the wild hare, eagles, ibex and Tyrolean Grey Cattle. You can touch the sky, if you just stretch out your arm. Your hand won’t actually caress the clouds, of course. But your heart will sense what it is like to be up there. And yet, very much grounded in the world. Making your holiday an especially deep and intense experience. In a place where contrasts come face to face… Farmers. Traditions. Tidbits. Farm Holidays here are especially full-flavored, deeply rooted, close to the earth. It has much to do with dishes sporting lilting names such as Kiachln and KrapfenTiroler GröstlKasspressknödelnStrauben and Schlutzkrapfen. And of course, lest we forget, Tyrolean bacon dumplings with sauerkraut … As it does with the fact that the farmers love their culture. And there is far more to that love than simply wearing a pair of lederhosen.  You can see it at the Imster Schemenlaufen, a festive celebration and big parade during Fasching. During Grasausläuten, when Old Man Winter is sent packing in the spring. And you sense it in June at the Sacred Heart Fire, when a 200-year-old oath is renewed, and the mountains are lit up in flames after nightfall…
