Camping in Tirol
33 in Austria, Tirol
Perhaps the best-known area and the most easily accessible part of the country is the Tirol in the west. A charming region with picturesque valleys to explore, it offers a raft of outdoor activities year round and has some wonderful campsites to stay on.
Tirol is the ideal place to get immersed in Austrian culture. The people are fond of their traditions, and folk music evenings and various festivals take place all through the year. Late summer and early autumn see animals being driven back from the pastures to their winter homes; cattle are adorned with flowers and bells, and these events are often accompanied by food and entertainment. Locally produced schnaps is not to be missed on such occasions.
A centre for outdoor sports, Tirol is a spectacular destination for hiking, climbing and cycling during the summer months and a haven for snow sports during winter. Skiing and snowboarding aren't the only options - for those who prefer to stay off the pistes there is ice skating, tobogganing and snowtubing.
