Crystal & Silver
Swarovski Kristallwelten in Wattens
Watched by the twinkling eyes of a giant, visitors enter the magical subterranean adventure chambers of this crystal paradise.

Rattenberg - the smallest twon in Austria
Rattenberg, the smallest town in Austria, is a medieval treasure whose beautiful town centre has survived to this day. Then there's the wide range of glasses and glass products the town produces, something for which Rattenberg is famous well beyond the borders of Tyrol. The art of glass processing has, after all, been practised here since the 19th century. In the run-up to Christmas, a trip to the Rattenberg Christmas Market under the glow of the lights of candles and flambeaus is an unforgettable experience.
Location: Rattenberg (around 18 km)

Tyrolean Farm Museum
Wonderfully situated, this, one of the most beautiful open-air museums in the Alps, invites visitors to take a walk through the region's farming past. Farmyards from different valley communities in Tyrol – their outbuildings, fences, equipment and so on – were removed and then rebuilt as part of a beautiful ensemble here. Immerse yourself in the life and working world of days gone by, which has defined the way of life in our province for so long.

Kramsach Cemetery Museum
"Hier liegt Martin Krug, der Kinder, Weib und Orgel schlug" ("Here lies Martin Krug, who played the organ; And gave blows to his wife and kids accordin'") is just one of the witty epitaphs that will bring a smile to visitors' faces at the cemetery museum in Kramsach but which also conveys impressively how the people of 100 years ago had a very different relationship towards death and dying.
Location: Kramsach (around 20 km away)
Opening times: daily from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm
Visible from afar, Tratzberg Castle sits enthroned high above the Inn Valley. The castle, built in 1500, was used by Kaiser Maximilian and the Fugger family as a hunting lodge. The late Gothic structure was extended during the Renaissance period and richly furnished. Because the castle has been privately owned by the Counts of Enzenberg since 1848, it has been excellently maintained.

City of Innsbruck
The medieval old city with its famous Golden Roof is just as worthy of a visit as the elegant promenade of Maria Theresien Street with its beautiful shops, street cafés and old palace. A ride on the Nordkettenbahn cable car, which takes visitors from the centre of the city high into the Alps (2,000 metres above) or the view of the mountains from the daring ski jump on the Bergisel hill are both unforgettable.
Location: Innsbruck (around 40 km away)
