Tyrolean Mountains, Crystal & Olympic Spirit
A trip to Austria would not be complete without having visited the capital of the federal state of Tyrol, Innsbruck. The city is beautifully located in the Inn river valley between the Tyrolean mountains. It looks back to a very long history and two Olympic Winter Games. Nearby Innsbruck is the famous Crystal World of Swarovsky, one of the most visited museums in Austria. Visitors are enchanted by this beautiful kind of crystal craftmanship and its visual effects.
Leaving from your hotel in Salzburg, this tour leads westwards towards the Tyrolean Alps and along the impressive mountain range Wilder Kaiser to the Inn river valley. After a scenic drive you will arrive at the Swarovsky Crystal World, where you have the opportunity to visit the museum and to have Lunch. Then this tour continues to Innsbruck, where you will see the highlights of the city, like the golden roof, the imperial palace or St. James cathedral. Before this tour leads back to Salzburg you will also visit the olympic area at Mount Isel.
