Travel to the Tyrol (Tirol) Region of Austria – Episode 207

categories: europe travel


The Amateur Traveler talks to Edith about the mountainous region of Austria where she grew up, the Tyrol.

Edith designs for us both a winter and a summer itinerary, both of which involve getting outside and enjoying the beautiful mountains. In the winter we would ski and in the summer we would hike. When we are not hiking or enjoying one of the mountain alms then we can explore the palace at Innsbruck, a hiking museum and the Höfemuseum which is a farm museum.

Edith talks about traditional foods such as Wiener Schnitzel, Kaiserschmarrn (sweet pancake dish), Kaspressknödel (fried cheese dumplings) and Graukäse (literally grey cheese). To work off that rich food (and of course beer) she will recommend we hike between the mountain huts or up her favorite hike Nochspitze.

I’m listening to this episode now, and I like the birdsong in the background!



I wondered if anyone else would notice the birds 🙂
