Cultural Programme

A Stroll through Innsbruck

Taking a stroll through Innsbruck will help you find your way around. You will get to know the sights, places to shop and where some restaurants and bars are located. You will also find out where we will meet up for our other activities.

Tyrolean Farm Museum in Kramsach, swimming in the Lake Reintaler See, Rattenberg

Fourteen farmhouses from various valleys in Tyrol were dismantled, transported to Kramsach and reassembled to create an open-air museum. You will experience the architecture of the farmhouses as well as the living and working environment of their former inhabitants. Afterwards we will relax at the Reintaler See. This lake is one of the warmest lakes in Tyrol. Then, you can explore Austria’s smallest town, Rattenberg, on your own.

Alpine Zoo

In one of the highest zoos in Europe, you will see a selection of animals that are native to the Alps. We will walk up to the zoo and return by bus.

Excursion to Hall

In the Middle Ages, the town of Hall was the most important economic centre of North Tyrol due to its salt production. After a walk through the Hall, you will have the opportunity to explore the old town of Hall, one of the best-preserved old towns in Austria, on your own.

Silver Mine in Schwaz

The Silver Mine in Schwaz is the largest of its kind from the medieval ages. After entering the 800-metre-deep mine with a small train, we will follow the traces of the miners and see how they mined silver and copper over 500 years ago.

Tratzberg Castle

The Tratzberg Castle is one of the most important art and cultural monuments in the country, used as a hunting lodge by Kaiser Maxilimian I. Tratzberg Castle was first mentioned in documents dating back to the 13th century.
