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.
