Olympic Innsbruck and Swarovski
A day in the Tyrolean Alps with Innsbruck, the Kaiser Mountains and the Swarovski Kirstallwelten as highlights.
No other region combines dramatic contrasts with as much attractiveness as Innsbruck, with its culture and nature, high peaks and low valleys, traditions and trends. Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol, has held two Winter Olympics.
After being picked up at your Salzburg hotel, your journey will take you via country roads to Lofer and then on to Ellmau, where you will see one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the Alps, the famed “Kaisergebirge.” To get to a beautiful photo area, you’ll take an off-the-beaten-path road. Take a beautiful photograph of that one-of-a-kind mountain range. Continue to Wattens for the Swarovski Worlds.
André Heller, a multimedia artist, built that unique and enchanting area in 1995. In May 2015, Swarovski Crystal World was remodeled and significantly enlarged outwards to accommodate an open space of crystalline nature known as “The Garden.” The Giant is the first stop on the Tour of the Crystal Worlds. André Heller created the story of the giant who set out to discover the world’s treasures and wonders.
