Skiing in Tyrol Part I: Stubai Glacier, Kühtai & Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis

Now, we are starting a little series we announced a while ago, but we needed to work a little in advance to bring this to life. In a series of posts, we want to show you some of Tyrol’s great skiing areas, including the classic ones nearly every tourist has heard about and some of our personal favourites. We also try to examine what the weak spots and big pluses are that these areas offer.

Innsbruck: A Beginner's Guide Part II

We are so glad that you liked our Beginner’s Guide to Innsbruck. We realized, however, that there’s still so much more we haven’t mentioned, and, before going into more details and showing you some of the secret hidden gems in the city, there are still some more classic tourist attractions, which are equally as beautiful, that we have to mention. 

So, here’s part II to our Beginner’s Guide:

Vienna - Christmas Markets

If you follow us on Instagram, you will know, that a little over a week ago, Sophie went to Linz. On Sunday, however, she went to Vienna to visit a friend whom she first met when she was in Hawaii last year. Vienna is such a magical city, especially during the holidays. Since there is so much to see there, they had a pretty busy day exploring all kinds of Christmas markets and sights.

Eibsee – Bavaria, Germany

Not too long ago, I spent a day with my sister at the beautiful Eibsee, also known as Lake Eib. We went by car, as it’s just about an hour from Innsbruck and only half an hour more if you’re coming from Munich. Just remember that if you are using Google maps or a similar service you should enter the parking area or hotel Eibsee as your final destination, or otherwise the services will send you on a very long and complicate journey to the other side of the Eibsee (including an hour walk just to get to the lake).

Salzburg - Christmas Markets

As you might have already noticed, right now we are exploring some of the Christmas markets in Innsbruck and cities close by. So, two weeks ago, we went on a little road trip to Salzburg, a quite well-known city, also known outside of Austria, mostly because of The Sound of Music or Mozart. From Innsbruck, Salzburg is easily reached within 2 hours by car, so it makes for the perfect day trip destination.

Umbrüggler Alm - Tyrol

Mid-November, I went hiking with my sister near the Nordkette. As the cable car is not operating during November to prepare for the winter season, we decided to hike to one of the lodges that are not too far up the mountain and easily reachable from the valley station. There are numerous ones, but we opted for the Umbrüggler Alm, as we've never been there before.

Innsbruck: A Beginner's Guide

If you have already seen our first ever post on Alps and Abroad, you will know that we, Natascha and Sophie, live in Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol. Since many of you probably don’t know Innsbruck that well, we figured we’d introduce you to our city and show you all kinds of different places and spots we love by starting a little series all about Innsbruck. We want to start this series by talking about the most known and famous sights of Innsbruck. So, let’s call this one the Beginner Guide.
