What do you get when you buy property in Tirol?
The beautiful province of Tirol, amidst the Alps, is a land of mountain ridges, deep valleys, light afforestation and villages that are picture perfect. The Alpine climate ensures snowy and cold winters, although summers are pleasantly warm and sunny, with somewhat unpredictable weather.
You probably know Tirol especially for the winter scenes though, because it's a great ski area. The largest and most well-known ski resorts of Tirol are Seefeld, Kitzbuhel, St. Anton am Arlberg, Ischgl and Zell am Ziller.
The capital of the province, Innsbruck, is also a popular ski centre with its location at the foot of the Alps, with six major ski areas at no more than an hour away. If skiing is not quite your thing, maybe other Innsbruck attractions could attract you. For example, the historic centre has a large number of late Gothic and Baroque buildings, and the legendary ‘golden roof’. Innsbruck is also Austria's third largest student city. The city therefore not only has a large student population, but also varied cultural and entertainment offerings.
