Book A4, 140 pages, 214 pictures.
The sheer diversity of the landscape and a harmonious marriage of culture and nature make Tirol one of the sparkling gems of Central Europe. From the Allgäu Alps to the Wetterstein and Mieminger ranges and the Karwendel, from the Silvretta, Ötztal, Stubai and Zillertal Alps to the Dolomites a magnificent mountain world unfolds, distinguished by precipitous walls of rock, mighty mounds of moraine, lush green pastures dotted with pines, mammoth glaciers of ice and silent swathes of forest.
An absolute treasure-trove of art relics and cultural monuments completes the picture; countless churches from the celebrated monastic basilica to the humble mountain chapel, ruined castles and splendid palaces complement the Alpine scenery.
In the Renaissance capital Innsbruck the Goldenes Dachl, Schloss Ambras, Hofburg and Hofkirche tell of a glorious past. The fascinating scenery, ancient traditions, historic heroes and hearty cuisine of Tirol are portrayed here in over 210 photos, taking you on a journey which explores to the full the great diversity of this "land in the mountains".
