Innsbruck – the regional capital of Tyrol
60 minutes away: the region's cultural and political centre is also one of the most beautiful cities in the Alps at the same time as it is surrounded by mountains and has sports facilities and sights in and on the outskirts of the city. Stroll past the world famous Goldenes Dachl (Gold Roof) in the old town, visit one of the many museums, take a cable car up to the Northern Range or visit the Bergisel ski jump.
Swarovski Crystal Worlds

You can get close up and personal with the tasty Vorarlberg cheese at various stops from the farm over the Alps to show businesses and dairy farms. Even though the cheese still tastes fabulous beforehand, afterwards you will also understand why and can experience it in a whole new way.
Tax-free shopping in Samnaun with three national borders

Exploring the Ötztal
You can reach the Ötztal valley in about 40 minutes. It is worth visiting the Ötzi village there, which deals with the sensational find and lifestyle of earlier Alpine dwellers. A bit further into the valley you can get up really close to the glacier and in fact travel by train on the Tiefenbach up to 3,250 metres.
