Medieval Kufstein, Tyrolean Schnapps Museum and Farmers Museum Z’Bach

Medieval Kusftein is a perfect introduction to the Tyrol, set in the foot of the great Kasier mountain range on the Tyrol-Bavarian border.

The town has a 30,000-year-old history and rich cultural roots. Its mighty fortress, which was over the centuries an important defence against the invading Bavarians, dates from the 13th Century and overlooks the green, Inn River.

Take the panorama cable car up to the fortress which now houses a museum of local history as well as the Hero’s Organ, the largest open-air organ in the world. Travel back in time with the interactive sightseeing tour and learn the secrets of the Kufstein Fortress.

Continue to a Schnapps Museum and learn the art of traditional Schnapps distilling and perhaps event try some of the local firewater.

Afterwards return back to the Wildschönau and visit the Farmers Museum Z’Bach and see how the life was back then for the Tyrolean Mountain Farmers.

Innsbruck and Swarovski Crystal World

Visit Innsbruck, capital of the Tyrol, nestled scenically at the foot of the Northern Chain Mountains.

This charming alpine city, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976, prides itself on its friendly welcome. See some of the highlights including the Hofkirche or court church, and the iconic Golden Roof.

We then continue on to the Swarovski Crystal World that celebrates the iconic crystal. With over 14 million visitors since its grand opening, the Crystal world is one of Austria’s most popular attractions. Admire the Swarovski Giant and the Chambers of Wonder, as well as the new Crystal Cloud.

We will then return to our hotel for dinner.

Known as the ‘Fjord of the Alps, Lake Achen is a natural beauty spot. And, with its eye-catching water colours ranging from emerald green to ultramarine, alongside its fascinating mountain scenery, it’s easy to see why Achensee is such a popular destination.
