Grossglockner - Dolomites - Bolzano - Merano - Trauttmansdorff
Full day-trip from Tyrol
Discover with us the scenic beauty of East and South Tyrol as well as their rich cultural and historical heritage. Here is a small selection of worthwhile destinations that you should not miss!
Castle Trauttmansdorff Merano
East Tyrol promises unforgettable nature experiences in an almost untouched mountain world. The region offers a variety of interesting destinations and sights, including the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and the sunny town of Lienz.
Grossglockner High Alpine Road
It is one of the most scenic and breath-taking mountain roads in the Alps! With a length of 48 km and 36 turns, it takes us deep into the centre of Austria's largest national park. The highest point of the mountain road is just over 2.500 m. From the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, a fantastic view opens up of the 3.798-metre high Großglockner, the highest mountain in Austria. At its foot lies the Pasterze, the largest glacier in the Eastern Alps.
It's only a short 35-kilometre drive from Innsbruck to South Tyrol!
Dolomites- UNESCO World Heritage Site
We will guide you through the Dolomites, the "most beautiful structure in the world". Amidst the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site of the Dolomites lie the Olympic ski resort Cortina d'Ampezzo along with such renowned and legendary natural gems:
- Lake Carezza
- Catinaccio Group
- Three Peaks of Lavaredo
- Alpe di Siusi
Bolzano and Ötzi
South Tyrol's capital Bolzano has a lot to offer. During a city walk we will show you the historic city centre with its numerous sights.
If you want to learn more about Ötzi, the glacier mummy, you should give the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology a visit.
