As one of nine states within the federal republic of Austria, Tirol is well known not only for all-season access to the Alps, but also for a variety of other attractions. With the state capital city of Innsbruck serving as home base, I explored the city on foot, and the following parts of the state with train and bus:
- Hall in Tirol,
- Stubaital, and
- Wilder Kaiser (Going, Ellmau, Scheffau).
For each location, I list the “why” (you should visit) and the “how” (you can get there from Innsbruck). I had specific goals, including a search for a Nobel Prize laureate, visit with friends, and expansion of a long-term photography project.
3. Hall in Tirol
Why: commanding view of Innsbruck, Inn valley, Sill valley, and beyond, from Hafekelar at 2260 metres (7420 feet).
How: Hungerberg funicular and Nordkette cable car, or entirely on foot.
7. Wilder Kaiser
With transport authorities IVB Innsbruck, VVT Tirol, and ÖBB Austria, I travelled to Alpbach (half-day), Brenner (half-day), Hall in Tirol (half-day), Nordkette (half-day), Scharnitz (half-day), Stubaital (half-day), and Wilder Kaiser (full day).

I made all photos above with a Canon EOS6D mark1 (6D1) and a Fujifilm X70 (X70) between 9 and 14 May 2018. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ccA.
