Tirol: a cultural discovery
Tirol is a place with a rich history, culture and centuries-old traditions that are celebrated and maintained with much joy. Explore a region with a great variety of Alpine traditions, an imperial heritage, mouthwatering culinary offerings and stunning architecture that spans centuries and styles, such as the newly renovated Swarovski Crystal Worlds. Just twenty minutes outside Innsbruck, amid the mystical mountains of Tirol, awaits a fairy tale world of shimmering crystal. Founded by Daniel Swarovski in 1895 it is one of Austria’s most popular attractions – part museum, part theme park and part art installation – and proof that crystal fascinates both young and old, from cultures all over the world.
In 2015, to mark Swarovski’s 120th anniversary, this universe of crystalline art was supplemented with a vast, poetic garden. The third and largest expansion to date brought Swarovski Crystal Worlds to more than 7.5 hectares and added several new elements to its appearance.
