Winter. Vacation in Tyrol

In the cold season, the winter wonderland of Tyrol shows its magical side: away from the pistes, dreamy snow-covered landscapes open up for winter hikes, you can sit together in rustic mountain huts after a sociable tobogganing session and you simply feel at home in the family-run hotels and guesthouses. In the evening, the fire crackles in the fireplace at the bar while the snowflakes fall softly outside the window.
