Schwaz Silver Mine
A visit to the Silver Mine in Schwaz is a very special experience. Over 500 years ago more than 11,000 miners worked in the most arduous conditions to extract silver and copper. This 'mother of all mines' promises an exciting journey through Europe's history!
Natural Ice Palace at the Hintertux Glacier
Using the handrail, walk the path through the entire system, which has been created without human hands. First stop on the tour is the entrance hall, cloaked in a mystical glacial blue. The eyes are immersed solely in a variety of turquoise blue because only blue colours are reflected by the ice.
The 'Crystal Chamber' houses sparkling ice crystal in all shapes and sizes. It continually changes depending on humidity and temperature. The question is always how things will develop in the next weeks and months?
A highlight of any visit is the actual "Ice Palace", about 25 m below the excellently prepared ski slopes. You'll be amazed by the 15-metre-high perfect ice formations.
The glass town of Rattenberg in Tirol
The smallest town in Austria with barely 400 inhabitants is an ideal setting for your holiday and a great place to wander, enjoy and shop! In the Medieval pedestrian area, traditional glass workshops offer plenty of variety. You'll be amazed by the numerous shops and excellent restaurants.
The "Goldenes Dachl" Roof in Innsbruck
Innsbruck's most famous landmark glistens in the heart of the old town. 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles give the alcove balcony its name. The building has reigned over the Medieval houses and shady arcades for over 500 years. It was built by the Emperor Maximilian who very much enjoyed the view: he observed the colourful goings on in his city, watched jousting tournaments and let people pay homage to him from below.
Visitors will notice the shimmering "Goldenes Dachl" roof as soon as the enter the historic old town; but it's also worth taking a closer look because its structure is richly ornamented. All kinds of figures and images adorn the building - including many curiosities.
